The annual Passion for Freedom art exhibition opened for a private viewing on 2 November.  An ICLA representative was able to attend.  They were particularly impressed by an exhibit by Victoria Burgher called “The Perfect Stone” and informed us:

“The winning exhibit (which I also voted for) was that people entering the gallery were given a piece of rock, without instructions what to do with it.  Once in the gallery, they found a box to deposit it, and with it, instructions that this was a suitable size of rock for a stoning, not too small, not too large!  Having it in your hand was quite impressive.”

Of course this exhibit referred to the hudud punishment of stoning which is sanctioned by sharia law.  Handing people stones of the appropriate size would certainly bring home to them the reality of this brutal practice.

The exhibition runs from 2 – 9 November 2013 at the Embassy Tea Gallery, 195-205 Union Street London, SE1 0LN, United Kingdom.  Opening times are as follows:

Tuesday 3pm – 9pm

Wednesday 3pm – 7pm

Thursday 12pm – 7pm

Friday 2pm – 9pm

Tonight (5 November) at 6.30pm there will be a movie screening of “The Siren” and “Girl Rising” Movie Screening  followed by Q&A Session.
