Princess Hijab Hits Parision Subways on Film

Video Here

Princess Hijab is one of many public artists whose work deals directly with advertising culture and public space. Made all the more interesting by France's recent decision to ban the Burqa just yesterday, this rare installation footage is well worth the watch. I was under the impression Hijab stole the ads and then returned to the location for install. I was unaware that the work was done on site. My own recent installations have involved this same sort of performative aspect and I applaud anti-ad artists who spend the time on site as a form of protest. At this point it takes on forms of civil protest and the public's interaction with your process can be highly informative for them.

Also, check out Princess Hijab's work in Toronto, made for the recent TOSAT project.
