On August 21, 2013, at 3:15 a chemical attack in Gotha in Syria made between 322 and 1729 victims.
40 days of mourning is the video of the Sun from August 21st, 2013 at 3:15 to 3rd of October at 3:15. 40 days before the soul leaves the body. 40 days of mourning for the body begins its decomposition.

Flowers, Framed picture, 2015
After the first chemical attack in Syria in 2013, an image of two children whose heads were numbered 54 and 55 was spread in the media.
In 54,55 I hide the image with a bunch of flowers inviting the viewer to choreograph an action seeking an image behind the plants.

I Brought you candies Because Flowers Are Perishable

In July 2015 I installed a bee hive on the outer boundary wall of the closed Jewish cemetery of Beirut. Unlike humans, bees were able to cross the wall, collect the nectar from flowers and return to build their honeycomb city and produce honey.
Seven months later, the harvested honey was used to produce 100 grams of candies made from 80 g of honey ( the amount collected by bees once on an area of 1800 m2, the surface of the cemetry).

Candle and candle holder, 2017


The unconsumed wax drops fallen from candles lit in Parisian churches are used to mold a candle that brings together remains of complaints, whishes and prayers.

Don't stare at me because I am darkened by the sun

Do not stare at me

Because I am Darkened by the
