In "Bullets," Moroccan-born multimedia artist Lalla Essaydi has meticulously sewn thousands of bullet casings together to form intricate mosaic backgrounds. In the foregrounds, her female subjects are adorned in shimmering fabrics and posed to recall (and subvert) Orientalist art; they gaze back at the camera, never as aggressively as in the "Bullets" series, refusing to be passively “seen.” Juxtapositions between domestic and public, East and West, male and female, combine for a series Essaydi calls “haunted by space, actual and metaphorical, remembered and constructed.”
