(un)covering (2002, excerpt, 13MB, 2:39 min.)

“Using 6 metres of fabric, the artist engages the viewer in a highly
personal act, playing on notions of the gaze. The artist maintains
a strong gaze of her own looking beyond the audience.
The performance becomes a drawing as the fabric becomes a line
that fills the space.”

Excerpt from a 5 min. single channel video loop by Farheen HaQ.
