TAQAL

is a Kurdish word that means stitches it is a loops of thread that connect fabrics and other material together. My mother had to work extra as a tailor to support her family.  therefore, whenever I came across a sewing machine reminds me of my mom’s story when she is sewing her pain,  with each stitch “Taqal” she is telling her story.Taqal examines the loops of cultural, social and political friction from a woman’s perspective. In this project, my mom’s sewing machine and its sounds are used metaphorically to represent obstructions against women and the difficulties they have in facing them.
