Silence of the Words by Ava Nadir

Free

A new art exhibition taking place at the French Institute, Erbil by the Iraqi artist Avan Nadir on 12 to 14 March 2017 at 5:30 pm

Ava Nadir is an Iraqi artist based in Kurdistan, known for her provocative and controversial pieces and subjects mostly related to women under war and fear, and women’s rights between culture and religion. Having lived most of her life under war, her inspiration comes from her life experiences as a woman living under political, social, cultural and religious pressure. Her series, Silence of the Words, was inspired by the oppression of women under religious extremism.
The event will include a Performace by Natalia Pestova:

During her 22 years career, graduated from Culture University of St. Petersburg, Natalia has performed with major organizations, such as Bolshoi Theater of Moscow, Greek National Opera of Athens and other of Classical & Contemporary Dance Groups in Europe.
