Rasha Kahil s Nude Photos Scandal
(What's up ?) 2 years ago

Lebanese artist Rasha Kahil caused an Internet scandal after posting online her naked pictures. The nude images were part of her “In Your Home” self-portrait series, which she began in 2008.

Kahil's artist statement on her website reads: "Through my work, I explore the themes surrounding the gaze, and the dichotomy of the private and public through the recurrent use of the body as subject and object, to explore the Auto/Biographical. The body becomes a means for investigating displacement, social identity and its manifestation through everyday performance."

 

A clear message is being sent by Kahil's body images, but online users are in shock and just not sure how to react to this outrageous scandal. Rasha explained that through these series of nude pictures she has intuitively and secretly appropriated other people's private spaces with her own nude body.

 

She further explained: "The privacy of my body overlaps with the privacy of the domestic space, and the resulting marriage is exposed through its confrontational display into the public sphere. The layers of appropriation are multiple: I invite you to peer into the privacy of my body while simultaneously taking over the privacy of another's domestic space."

 

It is now up to you to decide if this work is to be called a piece of art which deserves admiration or maybe a shock to the public sphere which will cause criticism..but nevertheless artist Rasha Kahil reached a goal...a widespoken roar online.

What do you think?
