My autobiographical work is a narration of the mental state of survivors healing from developmental trauma, and PTSD after sexual assault, domestic violence, and physical and emotional abuse. It shows various expectations of these struggles including an emotional and mental journey of healing, ghastly realities of mental illnesses, generational patterns of trauma, suppression of the survivors, social stigmas attached, and personal dealings with others while living in a conventional society. Living with mental illness and condemning sexual assaults are taboo worldwide for women. The provocative approach of my work addresses the aftermath of trauma which stays in the cognitive consciousness of survivors’ minds. It has an element of emotional aggression depicting those who have been through such occurrences in their lives.
Kite flying Project in Vlissingen, The Netherlands by Hans Overvliet, Ruimte Ceasuur –
In the 70th anniversary of the State of Israel, Overvliet asked twenty artists from home and abroad to create a work of art on a hexagonal sheet of Japanese paper that could be converted into a kite. The resulting kites were launched on the beach of Vlissingen on October 20, 2018. The artist wanted to recall the fact that in 2011, the Guinness record for the largest number of simultaneously launched kites was broken by children from the Gaza Strip: 12,350 kites stayed in the air for the required 30 seconds at a time. My work was connected to the horrors of rape in relation with every warfare.
