Takht Project (2021/2022, chosen illustrations from the book The Bed, 120×100 cm, Syria)

About the artist
(1991, Syria, lives in Syria)
he idea of the work talks about the bed in general. Filmed through personal experience of travel cases and the transition that took more than three years away the idea of settling in the family home or homeland. The project conveys pictures and drawings that express certain states of feeling alienated, lonely, and desired. From considering the takht as a transitional stage to another world far from reality, it conveys the situation with its difficulty or beauty. The project was presented in the mother tongue Arabic and Italian as the language of the host country.
