Her installations are generally mise en scenes which expose différent discriminations done to women and the exploitation of man by man. With derision , she calls in mind modern myths and symbolic icons of song and movie stars in the Middle East as well as Wes tern prejudices on the remaining world.

In her installation « Stripping of the garments », the whiteness of masculine forms, embottled and floating in the unknown space suggest the lightening of the body, for a spiritual utopia.
