Artist Statement
“It is like a documentation of the way of life before the Nakba and before the Israeli occupation of Palestine, a denial of what came with the Balfour “giving a land without a people to a people without a land”. Most of the villages and cities in the artwork have been destroyed, but this does not mean that Palestine has disappeared, as long as it exists in our memory, then it exists and our existence is strong evidence of Palestine’s survival.”
– Samaa Emad –
