Picture This presents the premiere of 'Avalon', a new video work by Maryam Jafri, which considers the changing nature of labour in today's globalised society.
In 2001, in an unnamed Asian country, a man known as F.R., was given $700 USD by his father and told to make something of himself. F. R. founded a multi-million dollar clandestine company that secretly exports fetish wear to the West. The dozens of mostly female workers believe themselves to be sewing body bags for the US military in Iraq, jackets for psychiatric patients and props for circus animals.
