Embossed Metal Sheet, Housed in a Dried Palm Branch with Acrylic Paint

1.65 x 30 cm, 1 Kg

"Diaspora" captures narratives of movement and themes of family and keeping it all afloat. and the role of the women in keeping it together. Some contemporary traumas and wounds that are held inside gave birth to this work that rings of the womb. This gave rise to the figures each with its own story coming together attempting to convey themes of exile and movement.

The process of making this work involved some found cycled material, like the palm (Nkhla in Iraqi) combined with Acrylic paint and metal. The metal sheets with embossing cut and shaped reside in and are held together by the palm tree that floats them to safety.
