Shadow 3.14

Shadow 3.14 by ElMal Art and Youcef Hadjazi challenges centuries of colonial discourse denoting the North African female as being oppressed through a performance of shadows - an interaction between a female of the diaspora and the women who were vital to Algerian independence shown in scenes of the iconic film Bataille de Algiers. Does not fitting into the binary of an oppressed North African woman render the female body deviant in itself?
