Prayer rug artwork pulled due to Muslim concerns
An art installation showing high heels on Islamic prayer rugs was pulled from an exhibition near Paris after a Muslim group complained the work could provoke "uncontrollable" reactions, the artist said on Tuesday.
"Silence", which has already been shown in Paris, Berlin, New York and Madrid, was supposed to go on display in Clichy La Garenne, which is just north of the capital, in a woman-themed art show.
But French-Algerian artist Zoulikha Bouabdellah (photo below) decided to replace the work after a local Muslim group told the town hall last week that "uncontrollable, irresponsible incidents could result" if the installation was shown there.
