Artist’s Statement:

Homes for the Disembodied is a large-scale suspended sculpture made from 50 continuous yards of black chiffon folded to create five connected dresses similar in form to the dresses traditionally worn by the women of Palestine. It was created for exhibition at the Al Wasiti Art Center in East Jerusalem in the year 2000. Homes for the Disembodied is both a memorial to and an offering for the people displaced from Jerusalem who were unable to return to their homes before their deaths. That the dresses are actually one piece is significant and speaks to the link that binds the Palestinian people through a shared misfortune. The dresses are lined up facing a single direction, as if waiting in line or moving together. The heroic scale reflects the strength and courage of Palestinian women who must carry on in unjust circumstances they have little power to change.
