Iraqi artist spotlights domestic abuse survivors with wall of clothes

Oct 27, 2020 18:24 IST

Iraqi Kurdish visual artist Tara Abdallah, unveiled a 5 km-long stitched collage of clothes from women survivors of domestic violence, in the city of Sulaimaniyah in Iraq's autonomous northern Kurdish region. 

Highlighting the rampant social problem, the artist said she asked women survivors to donate a scrap of clothing that symbolised their trauma and sewed them together to create a giant patchwork installation. 

Abdallah told AFP she started collecting clothing of women subjected to violence by their husbands and families throughout the region about three months ago.
