Making Ground Artist Statements

MARIAN ABBOUD Not her Reflection (An ongoing series of cross cultural offerings)
2021, digital print on mesh 

Not her Reflection is part of an ongoing series of work that investigates complex migrant histories in the style of classical folkloric Arabic storytelling and supernatural fiction, and revisiting the celestial phenomena through apparitions. Working across generations from the matriarchal bloodline, Marian looks at the overlapping connections of water memory and blessings through communal gatherings, the connection of place through different perspectives and the value we assign to knowledge and information that we now hold.
