Peeling Off Old Paint To Tell Stories Of Palestinian Refugees

With these four small interventions I am trying to tell a minimalistic story about the Palestinian refugees in Al Hussein, Amman Jordan.

By removing small areas of the “skin” of the houses I want to transform the paint chipping, produced by the passage of time, in to evocative landscapes and transmit the pride of its inhabitants through the walls.

Al-Hussein refugee camp was originally stablished in 1948 as a result of the Arab-Israeli war.

Very good! We need more political art. And the fact it's done in Jordan raises its significance and importance. The one with the diminishing Palestine... Very abstract but meaningful. What a shame we're allowing it to happen!
