Where Were You When The Lights Went Out (2013)
Yemeni Artist SALWA ALERYANI

In this series, Salwa Aleryani collects electricity bills from her family and writes on them different verses from poems that reference light and darkness, literal or metaphorical, seeking to criticize the current blackouts and lack of electricity Yemen is experiencing at a time when they are producing more than sufficient energy resources. From this, she tries to understand how that darkness affects ones emotions and mental state, since one can predict that without electricity an individual is left in a state of active discovery rather than mere a routine. Even in darkness and stillness ones mind is always occupied with thoughts that allows them to reflect and ponder. In addition, she also tries to reflect on the value of those two outlets; electricity and poetry, and how much they shape our perceptions of darkness and guidance, if one is to think of light as guidance. In these two samples, the artist chose verses from Mahmoud Darwish(top and middle) and Wallace Stevens (bottom) .

Carrie Mae Weems. 

Although I am obsessed with all of Weems’ work, there is a special place in my heart for her The Kitchen Table Series.  I think what gets me about this series is the simplicity; The ability to convey so much from one scene, one location, one family is amazing.

Children of War, Children of Peace (1996) - Palestinian Artist Laila Shawa

In this series, Laila Shawa tackles the consequences the Israeli occupation leaves on Palestinian children and the plights they go through living under the constant threat of its inhumanity. The child in the series is a boy whom she encountered carrying a stick in a refugee camp in Gaza, positioned against what seems to be graffiti from the streets of Gaza. Pop art is highly influencing this series as can be noticed through the change in background and subject colors.

Unfortunately there has been no change in these children’s lives and the trauma and dispossession has carried on. The only apparent difference in the streets of Gaza was the change in the colour of the graffiti which became brighter. However the misery, poverty and the trauma of violence remained. - LS
