‘Sigarett Qabel Bewsa’ exploits the relationship between sexual activities and smoking to represent a counter-argument to the sexualisation of objects in mainstream advertising. The female figure, often used by advertising campaigns to instill notions of desirability, is hereby represented as an asexual landscape where mundane exchanges occur. The practice of smoking after sexual encounters is reversed and merged to present a repulsive alternative.
