Later on, in order to utilize the capacities of ceramics in the realm of visual arts, she decided to enroll for her postgraduate degree. Her works have been shown in several festivals as well as group and solo exhibitions.
The “Temple/Garden” project is a reconstructed interpretation of the function and architecture of Mesopotamian city-states; solid structure of the temple walls and masculine, geometric structure; places for recognizing the seat of authority and the artificial order of the patriarchal rulership by forging a collective narrative for the masses.
Here, however, we see a temple that is translucent and fluid, reminiscent of the memoires of the Garden of Eden. It is a place for inauthentic narratives, or merely for praying in silence.
