Bow Echo

The work focuses on the relation between people and their environment. The protagonists produce eerie sounds as a form of recollection and connection with a landscape in which many traumatic events took place. They also embody my own relation as well as the involvement of many different national and international players within that space of trauma. 

 

The inspiration comes from my own experience with the recurring horrors of suicide bomb attacks that have unsettled the city of Kabul. Since 2001, they have taken place in different parts of the city, becoming an integral part of the recent history of Kabul. The approach I have taken has been one of the most persistent questions during the making of this work. Very often, the idea of representation becomes a dilemma. With strong references to an art historical imaginary, the work is an exploration of the traces of memory and remnants of war that become difficult to handle in the everyday.

Monument

Monument is looking at the act of celebration/commemoration in the communities in this particular documentation of the event it looks at a suicide bomb attack took place in a tuition center which caused causalities of more than 40 students, right after the event Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL) took responsibility of the attack by publishing a photograph of the suicide bomber as a proof of responsibility, politicians condemned the act by issuing condemnation statements on media platforms and local activists too. 

The families of students gathered dead bodies of their loved ones and buried them in a collective grave yard where the location was planned to become park in the coming future.
