Lara Chamas | Assimilation | Vegemite, burqua openers, tin, goon bag, jars | 2015
Based on the 4 main types of Islamic veil, these (non or poorly functioning) bottle openers subvert the female body, and religion into a vessel to open things, specifically to open a haram substance such as beer. These easily held tools ‘open’ up potentially forbidden substances, alluding to issues such as terrorism and gender inequality, practised under the name of something else.
