New artwork series using trashed drawers found on the streets of Haifa

The Memory Drawers

The memory drawers, although holding personal information and images, function as boxes, miniature cubicles where images of the Nakba, family, the passing time and the reminisces of the past are combined with objects of memories of times gone by. Abdi’s drawers, are displayed upright, poising the drawer as a three-dimensional box that contains varying images and objects. The vertical arrangement displays an option of peeping into, looking at the images as if taken out of concealment, brought out of secrecy to reveal to the viewer the pains and complex feelings Abdi wants to share.
