My work "Clytemnestra" consists of a red carpet, supplemented by a pair of golden shoes and the photo of a prayer rug, photographed in the mosque of Sultan El-Naser Mohamed in Cairo.
With these two very different carpets, I play in contrast to parallel realities with divergent values and thus draw attention to current social issues.
The title of the work also refers to a piece of common origin in western and eastern culture: Klytaimenstra was the mythological queen of Mycenae who, in the Greek tragedy of Aeschylus, unrolled the red carpet for the first time.
