Trespass the Salt (2011)
3-channnel video, 11'
Trespass the Salt is a collaboration with Youmna Chlala (Lebanon/US). The project is a 3-channel video installation aiming to dissolve the boundaries of fiction and documentary in the context of Palestine and Lebanon.
The video installation unites neighbouring countries divided by political borders in a virtual space. Through this intimate and fictionalised dinner, an impossible happening becomes real. The work explores cultural fabrications and similarities in a non-mediated moment outside the Western gaze - even if the space it seeks is invariably conditioned by it.
