Picturesque Palestine

β€œMemorial to 418 Palestinian Villages which Were Destroyed, Depopulated and Occupied by Israel in 1948"

Refugee tent and embroidery thread,

8’ X 10’ X 12’, 2001

This piece is a document (or the remains) of a three-month community-based project. More than 140 people came through my studio to sew, memorialize each village and socialize; oftentimes there was live Arabic music. The people who made this Memorial were bankers, lawyers, filmmakers, dentists, consultants, playwrights, artists, activists, teachers, etc.
