The Myth of Traces
Nabil Abu Ghanima recalls the stories his mother would tell him and his siblings at bedtime- legends from popular culture. However, her memory now faltering, she is unable to recount these stories in such detail. And so, Abu Ghanima aims to revive and document these tales, by visually capturing remnants of his mother’s memory.
Born in Gaza in 1984, Nabil Abu Ghanima holds a BA in Art Education from Alaqsa University, Gaza. He has taken part in numerous arts workshops and training courses in Gaza as well as various group and solo exhibitions, including the UNDP’s annual Art Auction supporting artists from Gaza and the ‘Tenth Art Festival at the South Valley University, Egypt (2008).
