Stephanie’s work continues to evolve by exploring her stance within female culture. Hadad’s works represent and touch upon the physical toll incurred by woman that have taken on the role of a traditional domesticated housewife. It's the duty of creating and keeping ancient traditions alive, not by force, but because of the desire to keep customs alive and cherished for generations to come. Through her responsibilities as a daughter, she witnessed firsthand through her mother, the burden to persevere, but in the end also revel a joy. With transformation of these perpetual traditions, Stephanie acknowledges and plays with the conscious ideas her position holds within this role and is continuously being redefined by her experiences.
Through studies, research and exploration of her individuality and culture, Hadad has taken a political and yet poetic approach to voice her works through a diverse and often unconventional range of media, including installation, sculpture, video, photography and works on paper. Each piece corresponds with the others, creating a narrative for women, who especially now, are starting to get the recognition they deserve.
