Overview

Using as its backdrop Palestinian folklore, superstition, religious custom, talismanic objects and sacred sites to investigate the role of the mystic and mystery since times past, Night Journey brings supernatural and earthly elements together, investigating the whys and hows of their relationship, and attempting to expose the duality of their nature – light and dark, innocence meets evil, cosmos and chaos.

Special thanks to art students Sara Al Haddad, Maysoun Eid Abou-Houly, Samira Samir Said and Sundus Ameen from the American University of Sharjah, American University of Dubai, and the University of Sharjah.
