Product story

Guler Ates’ arresting work is characterised by the subject of a veiled figure often photographed in historically opulent surroundings. Mysterious and ambiguous, her compositions are carefully constructed and often form part of wider performance piece. In this intimate image, the figure is presented in isolation within a decorative interior representing the domestic context of the inner apartments of houses in India and Pakistan. Whether hiding or indulging in a private moment, the figure in this work, as with all of Ates’ subjects, press the viewer to consider the complexity of the position of the non-Western woman’s within a media-dominated and increasingly judgmental Western world.
