    ‘I entwine figures in my work so they are forced to converse and interact. Sometimes this creates difficulties in seeing where one ends and the other begins, but it adds to the work’s overall tension’
    (A. Alsoudani, quoted in R. Hobbs, ‘Interview with Ahmed Alsoudani’, The World Belongs to You, Venice, 2011, p. 42).
