- ASHERY Oreet, Portrait Sketch. 2006.

‘Portrait Sketch’, street intervention, Delhi, 2006. In 2006, Whilst in Delhi, Ashery visited the craft market Dilli Haat dressed as a Jewish man. She had her portrait drawn by a portrait sketch artist. Later on in the day she returned, this time dressed as an arab man and was drawn again by the same artist. The portrait sketch artist who might have been bemused or perplexed, did not reveal any such feelings, he just got on with his job and drew what ever he saw in front of him. The intervention invites the viewer to contemplate the nature of authorship in art and identity.
