An outlet for the many voices in my head on being muslim, running and my love affair with jellybabies

Halaal art


i almost forgot to blog about this. went to check out this exhibition (yes, engineers can appreciate art!) a few months back. Hassan and hussain essop are two really talented artists (they are brothers) from cape town. Their work focuses a lot on ‘the role of the individual in society, in particular the space that Muslim youth negotiate in a secular environment’. Their work is definitely thought provoking. I was disappointed to see very few muslim people attend the exhibition though because they raise some very serious questions (albeit in a very quirky way) about how we interpret our islam and how we project ourselves as muslims.
