War of Ignorance (2015)

Project Statement

“War of Ignorance” is a series of appropriated images from the mass media, which depicts the casualties of recent conflict in Gaza. Each frame represents a lost identity; an abstracted vision of the sacred self, an autopsy, in order to bring the invisible to visibility.

This work is an inquiry to further understand how the pattern of violence and ignorance of media could exhaust a self through the systematic destruction of identity. A self that becomes the other, ignored and excluded but still a part of humanity; face-less others who are living on the air since they have been dispossessed from all lands!
