    Artist's statement:
    Manuscript X is a continuation of the artist's book Manuscript 1994 (dated 1994) which is a complete book and an installation project. The individual pieces which I have continued making up to the present share the same content which is a personal statement about my identity as a modern woman in relation and in opposition to Islamic morality and codes of being.
