Red, from the Cast No Evil series (Edition of 8) by Alia Ali
Photography / 70 cms x 100 cms
Alia Ali is an American-Yemeni- Bosnian photographer and “Red” is an image from her Cast No Evil series that explores subjective perception in regards to inclusion and exclusion, and the threshold in which the transition between the two occurs. The character in the “Red” is a figure (the artist herself) wrapped in layers of fabric that shields her from interrelating with anything beyond the material. With this simple act Alia poses a number of questions about barriers in the society, the notion of acceptance and rejection, communication and relation, indifference and security.
