Connecting Work

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”.
