Ghada Amer (b. 1963, Cairo) uses her erotic emrboideries to reappropriate traditional motifs of misogyny and hypersexualization of women. She at once rejects oppressive laws set in place to govern women’s bodies and repudiates first-wave feminist theory that the body must be denied to prevent victimization. Her works explore dichotomies of an uneasy world, confronting the language of hostility and finality with narratives of longing and love. Amer’s practice also includes ceramics, bronze sculptures, garden installations, and paintings on cardboard, with her quintessential motif reappearing across material boundaries.
