Interview: Princess Hijab

As Defaced finds a shot of an H&M ad modified by Princess Hijab, Hyperallergic interviews the anonymous Paris-based artist. Janelle Grace writes:
Although I do believe her work is often misinterpreted as solely working to hide bodies, and is perhaps challenging ubiquitous conventional body imagery instead, whatever her explicit agenda is doesn’t seem to be the point. She’s much more interested in ambiguity as a tool, which “allows the questions and content of my work to form to the viewer. And I think a society which asks questions is a healthy society.”
