ItemMASHQ (A Practice)(Alfred University, 2023-05) Ahmad, Javaria; Montgomery, Lindsay; Hopp, Johnathan; Sikora, Linda; Willard, Adero; Hanes, Stephanie; McConnell, WalterThe everyday labor of homemaking comes with its own joy and pain. This research paper will discuss the everyday life of a South Asian woman (especially in Pakistan) in relation to mundane domestic activities that keep these women going. It will shed light on the widely practiced stereotypical beliefs about women’s lives. Pakistan is a religiously conservative country where gender hierarchy prevails. In traditional households, women are still taught and expected to be submissive and obedient. Such restrictions are often suffocating yet inescapable. Such ideas will be discussed with reference to my own art practice as well as the works of other artists. It is interesting to know that many women around the globe share similar kinds of lives and therefore respond to them through corresponding ideas in art.
