This series of works are filled with prejudiced and symbolic elements. MadeIn Company extracts materials from Middle East’s political cartoons and Arabia culture as well as art, creating and catering to the universal expatiation which comes from western countries. Simultaneously, it ridicules the entire producing of contemporary art. Moreover, the influence of newly emerging economy and the desire as well as expectation of searching for the exoticism encourage MadeIn to revolt and challenge the art colonialism. This project uses the goal of exposing the filters of prejudice through which one culture views another to create an incongruous level between appreciation and understanding. It also reveals a paradox: we cannot see our own eyes, only can see them from others.
