Abdelnasser Amr

2009

Remnants of Life

Juxtaposing raw materials from remains found around Gaza- pieces of fabric, wood and scraps of paper- Abdelnasser Amr creates a form that echoes the destruction of war. The words on these pieces of burnt paper- torn documents now devoid of context- are, like all conflict, illogical and incomprehensible amid the ashes that permeate their surface.
