Finding Home#79 Lilith (Fereshteh)

Siona Benjamin. Finding Home#79 Lilith (Fereshteh), 2006–2006.

Description:
Finding Home #79 “Ishq” (Fereshteh)

I remember
The day the war was announced
The day Lilith was resurrected
She belongs to neither side
Iraq? US? British? Israel? Palestine? India? Pakistan? Rwanda?
When blood mingles
It is difficult to tell it apart
Ishq….Love….Passion
How do you translate it?
Is your passion more important than mine?
More caring?
More sustaining?
More passionate?
More necessary?
More vital?
More memories?
More bloody?
More vengeful?

Medium:
Painting
