Jihad of Bitter Petals are works questioning what it is to be caught between the struggle and submission and the merger of Queer and Islamic Identities in a single body. Yasmine Kasem’s sculpture installation interprets the maintenance of internal conflict through materials in a constant state of precariousness.
