For her upcoming solo exhibition at The Drawing Center, artist Ebecho Muslimova will create a site-specific installation that will include thirteen large-scale panels featuring satirical graphic drawings of her alter ego "Fatebe." In Muslimova’s new works—comprised of eight single panels, a diptych, and a triptych—Fatebe’s nude body is contorted and stretched, as she finds herself in situations both humorous and compromising. For Muslimova, Fatebe’s unabashed occupation of physical space and confidence in her pliable, albeit imaginary body and its many functions represent ongoing shifts in the perception of the female form.
Organized by Rosario Güiraldes, Assistant Curator.
