Dzamil Kamanger’s Prison Sheet is an enlargement embroidered in Mouliné stranded cotton of a photograph taken by the Red Cross. This picture of Kamanger and his fellow prisoners in Iraq’s, Al-Romadi’s prison was sent to Kamanger’s relatives to show them he was alive. The work replicating the photograph has been embroidered, using a slow, laborious technique, with feelings that were not dealt with during his ten years in prison, feelings that this civilian prisoner of the Iraq-Iran War still carries with him.
