Great sand : grains of occupation and representation

  • Nadine Hattom's text is written as a sequel to the artist's 'Shadows' series (2016), comprised of ten digitally altered photographs made from US Department of Defense public-domain images depicting Operation Iraqi Freedom. As Hattom's piece explores migration and landscape, it untangles narratives rooted in the colours, textures, ecosystems, and geographies of the Middle East, but also in the political implications of the author's position in the landscapes of the West.
