Monica Jahan Bose’s performance UNWRAPPED using the saris from this project was described in a review of (e)merge art fair in Berlin Art Link. Quoting from the review:
“DC-based, Bangladeshi-American artist-activist, Monica Jahan Bose performed Unwrapped. With a 216-foot sari—covered with writing from the women of Bose’s ancestral island village in Southwestern Bangladesh as part of a storytelling and eco-empowerment project—Bose wrapped and unwrapped her body with the help of volunteer performers. The action developed on the hotel’s pool deck. Bose turned this religiously neutral space into a type of sacred platform, inspired by a mythical Indian tale and her grandmother’s marriage at age seven.”
