Multidisciplinary artist Aima Saint-Hunon pursues forms and curves, a mix of maturity and sensuality found in her audience and herself. Her work explores the intersection of emotion, sensuality, and the reflection of the soul, while allowing the imagination of spectators to freely interpret the message for themselves.
The main theme of her performance “I Am: The Unity of the Sacred Femininity and Masculinity” is the imperial encounter of the inner marriage of female power and sacred masculinity. The performance and the artworks aim to offer a reflection sweeping the viewer towards the highest realms of the spirit.

What does it mean to make art now? The artists featured in this week’s edition all offer a tentative answer.

Later in the podcast, artist and composer Fatima Al Qadiri sheds light on her latest album,Medieval Femme, and her recent forays into scoring films.
This week also sees the release of two new episodes in our flagship video series, ‘Meet the Artists’.
