  • This digital collage is a self-portrait of the artist Bakhyt “Baha” Bubikanova composed of images of newborn babies and defragmented parts of military men that disguise the identity of the central figure. The role of women and marriage in Kazakhstan’s patriarchal society implies numerous traditional requirements and taboos, such as childbearing. Bubikanova uncovers her subconscious fears of the pressure that comes from her family members, her close surroundings, and the society at large.
