Description

The Refugee’s Memory Series explores the notion of feminism, identity and the plights of refugees. It reflects on times of pain, war, memory, alongside humanity, love and warmth, connecting people through turmoil and preconceived differences. Her colour palette is reminiscent of old photographs with a contemporary angle. This allows Hawash's work to understand the present and contemplate the future. In this project, the artist decided to revive the Palestinian collective memory through the combination of old and new by scanning old images and combining them with new memories through digital art. Research into the historical photographs allowed Hawash to produce new narratives to reawaken the Palestinian cause. Moreover, this project was inspired by Mahmoud Darwich poem's that have a depth to express the power of love and land.

Artist

Aya Abu Hawash

Aya Abu Hawash (b. 1993) is a palestinian visual artist who grew up in Lebanon. She received her BFA and MA from the Lebanese University. Hawash's work explores intimacy, censored history and political memory in the Middle East. Her recent body of work addresses intimate themes of self-exploration and reinterpreting politics and social surroundings within a censored Arab context. The artist's practice is influenced by her identity as a Palestinian Lebanese woman and the many ways that society pressures her to conform. In her work, she explores with wonder and conviction – between photographs, memories, history & media, through which she questions herself and her environment. Hawash works in many mediums including painting, collage, drawing, mixed media and photography. She has exhibited her work in-group shows in both Beirut & Dubai, showcasing mostly paintings & mixed media. Aya worked as an Art educator & trainer .She also forms a part of the Rotaract club and international OGIP Advocacy network. She worked recently with YWS and Art education projects. In 2020, she was awarded 4th place for a work created for ESCWA and Arab Institute for Youth Art Competition during 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence.
