T Magazine (New York Times) on Two Not Together (Aisha Abid Hussain)
See a Pakistani artist who questions gender roles.
Aisha Abid Hussain is often the star of her own photography, yet never the same character. Her show for London’s Hanmi Gallery, “Two Not Together,” explores the theme of different but equal identities. In one series, archaic photographs of men and women in traditional, gender-specific Pakistani clothing are pasted, collage-style, over decrepit buildings and sites of rubble. Another series captures Hussain, dressed like a Pakistani man, sitting side by side with a copy of herself, dressed like a Pakistani woman.
Runs until Sept. 25, 30 Maple Street, London, hanmigallery.co.uk.
