Multidisciplinary artist Ghada Amer is known primarily for her pictorial work, which she augments with embroidery, temporarily blurring our reading of the works. Moving in closer to decipher the composition of her paintings, viewer turns into voyeur as the eye makes out, amidst the clumps and “drips” of thread, the female bodies displayed in situations of erotic pleasure.
