In Between: Stories of home and land | ما بین بین: قصص عن الوطن والارض

[Please note this is a two day event. It will be happening on April 7 from 16h00-20h00 and on April 8 from 10h00-20h00. You can visit the installation at any of those times.]

DESCRIPTION

Four participants and I, Palestinians living in diaspora: Lebanon, Jordan, Norway and Canada… Why and how?
Each one of us has a story to tell based on: diaspora and identity… belonging and attachment… Land and belief…
The starting point for this collective endeavor is our feelings of nostalgia, chaos, and a collage of images from memory, the memories of our grandparents and parents, as well as our imagined individual and collective memories. Hence the question stretching from memory to imagination:
What does homeland mean to you?
If there were no borders and you were able to visit Palestine for only one day, where would you go and what would you do?

This collaborative installation is the result of the research-creation process of Lucine Serhan’s work as part of her MA thesis in Art Education at Concordia University. All the videos are in the Arabic language with English subtitles.

With the participation of: Ahmed Alaydi, Fadia Khorbity, Dareen Miliji and Rahma Mughrabi.

اربع مشاركين وانا…. من فلسطين، نعيش في الشتات، في لبنان، الاردن، النروج وكندا…
لماذا وكيف؟
لدى كل واحد منا حكاية يرويها حول الترحال والهوية، الانتماء والتعلق، الأرض والفكره
ينطلق هذا العمل الجماعي مما نشعر به من حنين وفوضى وصور مركبة من الذاكرة، ذاكرة الاجداد والآباء وتلك المتخيلة الفردية والجماعية
:فجاء السؤال يمتد من الذاكرة الي الخيال
ماذا يعني لك المكان او الوطن؟
ولو لم تكن هناك حدود واستطعت أن تذهب الى فلسطين ليوم واحد فقط، أين ستذهب وماذا ستفعل؟

يأتي هذا المعرض الجماعي نتيجة البحث الذي تنفّذه لوسين سرحان كجزء من مشروع أطروحتها في ماجستير التعلّم من خلال الفنون في جامعة كونكورديا. كل الفيديوهات التي تُعرض خلاله هي باللغة العربية مع ترجمة بالانكليزي

المشاركين: أحمد العايدي، فاديه خربيطي، دارين ميليجي، رحمه مغربي
