A Jordanian artist and photographer, Wedad Al Nasser picked up on painting in 2008 and has been exploring the trauma of exile ever since. With Yemenite origins and a Palestinian homeland, Wedad paints the experiences, alienation and displacement of her parents , grand parents... “Although I have never experienced displacement myself, I have heard stories about exile my whole life. My parents and my grandparents kept talking about ‘another home.
I always perceived a sense of agony, a suffering affecting them. I felt like they could never connect to where they were. In a way, they transmitted to me that feeling of disconnection".
