“ʿAḏrāʾ Samar” considers iconography and the production of identity in a transnational context. The work revisits moulds for objects commissioned by a souvenir shop in Amman during the 1990s and made by the artist’s father. By reconstructing and repositioning these objects—in terms of material, time, place and context—the work functions as an act of commemoration, while simultaneously rethinking the meanings inherent in these objects as sociopolitical and cultural icons. Originating from experiences of place and relocation, the work is a practice of reviving, reassembling and repositioning images by means of evocation.
