Sukran Moral

In her 2009 performance piece "Love and Violence," Moral dresses all in black with a black hijab. Seated at a desk is a life-size doll wearing a flora-patterned dressed, meant to be the character's daughter. Moral picks the doll up and lifts her skirt before slitting off her clitoris with a razor blade. She then dresses the girl in black, like herself, and puts a white wedding veil on her head. Then she carries the girl to a wall on which there is a life-size photograph of the 40-year-old Afghan man made famous in a 2007 picture of him sitting next to his frightened-looking 11-year-old bride. After the wedding, the woman picks up a black rubber jump rope, with which she symbolically whips the girl to death before turning the whip on herself. "We women are guilty, too," Moral says.
