Michelle Samour: Borders and Boundaries

February 13, 2021 - September 19, 2021

Borders and Boundaries is a series of works by Michelle Samour that appeals to the artist’s ancestral past as a means of further engaging in the politico-geographic concepts of homeland, exile, and diaspora. Through cartographical repetition and reflection, Samour maps the historical (dis)possession of Palestine, ultimately decimating borders, boundaries and territorial constructs into geometric abstraction. The work critically investigates the meaning of shape/land/form within the guise of traditional Palestinian craft, including the vibrant colors of textiles and opulent Mother-of-Pearl carving.
