Landscapes of my mother's country

My mother was born in Haïfa, Palestine. She was expelled in 1948 and never could return, nor collect her belongings. This is what Palestinians call "the nakba" I wanted to do imaginary landscapes of this land that I will never see. I asked the palestinian embroiderers living in refugee camps to the stitch a small motif representing a village, a point of view, a specific landscape. It's  this ancestral embroidery motif that indicates the specific landscape.

Stars and roman rose 90 x 70cm.  Acrylic and embroidery
