The ALÂTHAR exhibition is dedicated to the theme of destruction and reconstruction. The artist proposes an unprecedented photographic work. She explores the themes of loneliness, memory, oblivion. Her work reflects upon the reappropriation of heritage by the populations and stresses the issues of living amid the rubble of the war. An inside look through images that drag us into a far, inaccessible, indescribable world.
