I END TO BEGIN

“I End to Begin” is a series of paintings and video performances expressing my latest spiritual experiences. 


After three years of living in Leipzig, Germany,  I started shifting and reshaping my beliefs; perhaps I saw this as a way to fit in faster.  Eventually, an explosion of spiritual awakening hit me, and along with it came my creations. I became captivated by consciousness and the soul; it was so interesting for me to study my thoughts on the infinite possibilities and mystical mythologies of these notions.

I believe my Druse background was a starting point for the idea and inspiration for this series. The concept of reincarnation was like a window opening new dimensions for my body, mind, and soul to travel through.

“The Pentagon” video installation includes five video performances depicting the fight between different traditions, cultures, and religions. This is the struggle of forming an identity and a belief system that feels like me wherever I live, whether it is in Germany or in Lebanon.

 “I End to Begin” is a quest for unanswered questions and an attempt to work through a wavering identity. One adventure after another, my curiosity multiplies and possibilities arise.

“I am a Foreigner” is a series of paintings and video performances that express my journey from Lebanon to Germany. They depict my feelings between attachment and detachment. It also portrays my disoriented emotions that sway my existence between my homeland and my new life here in Leipzig.

It is tough to “be” in a setting where I am also dissimilar. With every painting or performance, I root myself in this new soil. I want to continue here what I was before.

“I am a Foreigner” is the extensions and the delays; it is the shouts and the whispers. It is what was and what will be. 

I trust my way, step by step. My faith grounds me and my hope lifts me high.

I am walking...
