I Saw The Moon Again:

 

I saw  the moon again

The red one

Not so far

On the pale skins

Deep

And fleshy

I saw the moon again

The red one

Not so far

On the cold walls

Broken

And empty

I saw the moon again

The red one

Not so far

On her breasts

Thigh

And genitals

I saw the moon again

The red one

Not so far

On land

Clouds

And river

I saw the moon again

The red one

Not so far

And

It turned black

Why black

I wondered…..

About the work :

I Saw The Moon Again is inspired from my poem The Red Moon series. The poem is based on  a virtual and fantasized conversation between the moon & me. My works engages with different social situations and issues and translates them into multi-sensory interactive experiences. In this works I explored and expressed the agonies of war, human rights violations.

As you enter the installed tent, the moon light's up with an audio of the poem. The inside surface of the tent carries the images of organic and inorganic wounds painted on both sides, only reviles itself once the moon is full. The image references of the inorganic wounds are taken from the bullet marked walls of Syrian house and the organic reference comes from the pellet & bullet wounds on the civilians bodies. Though one is living and the other is not, but both looks visually similar piercing through layers of cement & brick or flesh & bones raising question about loss.
