The Venus of Palestine
This work connects the series “Resisting Beyond” and “Saving Oneself from Shipwreck”. It is dedicated to the civilians who died at war. The body of a woman in Palestine, land that has not seen peace in a long time. A body wrapped in a distorted, metal shroud that covers her face and pierces her stomach. A body laid on an altar which too had been violated. A body that emits a sense of sensuality in the meaning “a desperate vitality”.
