Nasima Begum

A Homemaker in Bangladeshi Households


My project is to explore a woman’s choice to be a homemaker and whether she feels valued. My work will be researching and creating text based artwork surrounding the cultural dynamics in particularly living with the in-laws and making comparisons between religion and culture.

The image is of myself on my wedding day, over it are words relating to feelings and over the scarf are words like culture and expectations as there was always this expectation of how the woman should have her wedding scarf on her wedding day even if no men could see she was expected to wear it a particular way inshaAllah.
