Spandita Malik's embroidered portrait project, Nā́rī, was made in collaboration with women in India to illuminate the gendered violence and fight for women's rights in the country. Malik explains that the Sanskrit word Nā́rī’ translates to "woman, wife, female, or an object regarded as feminine, but it can also mean sacrifice." Interested in the power of embroidery as both a visual language and a traditionally feminine handcraft, Malik traveled to regions in India known for their distinct embroidery styles, meeting with women to discuss their experiences of oppression and photographing them to share their stories.
