Under Siege – MĒTA platform | 2016

Under Siege is a work that focuses at the brutal abolition of human values via the abrupt change of the most crucial human right, the Freedom. When a human being caused to be free and has no spiritual life, it leads to collapse and dissolution. From that moment and until the end, humans try to regain their values via the perpetual struggle but mainly through his/her’s mental and spiritual freedom.

In the state of siege, time becomes space
Transfixed in its eternity
In the state of siege, space becomes time
That has missed its yesterday and its tomorrow
(Mahmoud Darwish, translated by Marjolijn De Jager)
