"Is a scarf really just a scarf? How did the Hijab become such a symbol in Denmark that it sometimes even keeps us from communicating with each other?" asks Danish artist and writer Katrine May Hansen in the notes accompanying her outdoor project titled 'A Scarf is A Scarf is A Scarf'.

The exhibition, which forms part of Hansen's Heart2Heart tour, was undertaken in collaboration with photographer Dot Severine Nielsen, and presents photographs of women wearing a variety of head scarves.
