Sacredness and how things become sacred as ongoing phenomena are both current and deepened in our hostory. In this project I have printed one chapter of Koran which is about Hijab on the actual Hijab cloth that is called Chador in Iran. This work is targeting the idea of sacredness. I wrote this chapter in "Moala" calligraphy style, which is used mostly in Koranic texts in Islamic culture and architecture. I computerized it to make a big vinyl stencil to be able to print it on the actual cloth. This way the text that orders Muslim females to wear Hijab and the object which is considered Hijab have become one. It creates a liminal space, a mere fold where a State of Existence/Institution and the "Law" enforcing that state/Institution overlap.
