A Cave in Dhahiriya

2012, installation

Through investigating the town of Dhahiriya; interviewing people and visiting houses to collect photographic material, objects, ready mades, old clothes, written texts, books, music, folkloric poems and so on the artist built an installation in the cave that functions as a museum specimen for the village and the region. Included are also photos of the artist inserted among the material, small sculptures made out of material found in the region. The project addresses questions that are pertinent to the recent Palestinian obsession of creating museums, that comes in certain cases as a plea for an unnecessary legitimization.
