The work "Clytemnestra" consists of a red carpet, on which is placed a pair of gold-painted shoes and a picture depicting a prayer carpet, photographed in the mosque of Sultan El-Naser Mohamed in Cairo.

The two carpets represent two parallel realities with divergent values and draw attention to current social issues.

The title of the work refers to a story with origins in both Western and Eastern culture: Klytaimenstra was the Queen of Mycenae who, in the Greek tragedy of Aeschylus, unrolled the red carpet for the first time.
