A series of women at rest, as created by Moroccan artist Lalla Essaydi.

Essyadi makes use of elements of Orientalist imagery and Arabic script - written in calligraphic form and applied with henna - to challenge and re-contextualize notions of exoticism and gender, creating a highly personal feminine space where the woman’s autonomy is established through the reclaiming of her agency.

Where Orientalist art informs the format and paradigms on which she models most of her art, the incorporation of calligraphy written in Arabic - a role usually reserved for men in Arabic culture, and the use of henna - a temporary natural dye used mainly for aesthetic purposes by women in parts of Africa and Asia, Essaydi merges two areas of Arabic culture where gender plays a central role in their social application, in order to create a new and sacred private feminine space.
