Cheek / Visual writing 


I have a dream, Visual writing, Digital work, 2012 - 2017









About Cheek:

The work "Cheek" is a series of images from Syria, of people and their stories. Harsh images and videos of massacres published in the media. Images hard to watch. During the last three years 2011/2012/2013, I was writing on these images what I see in the image itself. 
The visual text ... consists of words written on images of people or places in and from Syria. Calling things by their names ... to remind ourselves that they exist! Writing words or the names of what we see ... no more. "Ear, Eye, Brow, Window, Blood, Nose, Child, Neck, Throat, Chin, Shoulder, Heart, Mother, Fingers, Cheek...”.
