I Came From There
Neon light /Sound installation. 2015
An answer to the question "Where do you come from?”, the question that drives me to constant confusion, a simple question that aims to acknowledge the origin and identity. As a Palestinian refugee, I develop my identity on the aftermath, as well as my answer developed depending on the time and the place. There is no one simple answer for where I’m from, the explanation has to include a whole story of colonialism, wars, oppression and alienation from a land to another, until I found the answer in a poem by Sargon Boulus with the same title.
