[Les Femme du Moroc: Grande Odalisque 2] Love how Lalla Essaydi mocks French painter Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres’ famous painting, The Grande Odalisque. 

"Her paintings often appropriate Orientalist imagery from the Western painting tradition, thereby inviting viewers to reconsider the Orientalist mythology."

blackcontemporaryart:

you are a horse running alone
and he tries to tame you
compares you to an impossible highway
to a burning house
says you are blinding him
that he could never leave you
forget you
want anything but you
you dizzy him, you are unbearable
every woman before or after you
is doused in your name
you…
