This Body Is Water 1/ Gismee Maya 1

This Body Is Water 1/ Gismee Maya 1 (Egyptian Arabic phonetic spelling), made in 2017, is an installation of life-size hand-painted figurative cut-outs on paper, in combination with transparent fabrics and collaged written script on fabric. The piece is a reflection on mourning and movement, as a result of violent upheavals. Collaged script includes my own with womens' writings collected in workshops done with Arab African im/migrants and refugees.
