A Childhood Memoir Under Construction
Mohsen, Abir Abu
Sanctuary, a noun identifying a place of safety, refuge, or shelter, may also refer to a Holy place, or a sacred place. It is also the concept in which I identify a home, a place that is meant to provide fulfillment to our need for comfort, safety, and growth. However, what would become of a home once it is intruded by that which negates its attributes? This question is presented throughout my work. As an extension to the inquiry, my work examines living conditions under conflict, war and diaspora especially within a child's life. Using fantasy and assigned symbolism, this body of work reflects on my experiences, as a Palestinian-American, as well as of others' who live under such conditions.
