Working directly, viscerally, and metaphorically, untitled part 3b provides an elegiac response to the Palestinian dispossession.
Part of untitled, a series of projects addressing social and political realities and representations, manifestations, and enunciations, focusing on borders/nationalisms/ movements and subjectivity and the conditions of living between polarities of culture, geography, history, and ideology.

TWN acknowledges that in New York we are on the unceded territory of the Lenni Lenape,
Canarsie, Shinecock, and Munsee peoples and challenges the harm that continues to
be inflicted upon Indigenous and People of Color communities here and abroad,
which is why we all need to be part of the struggle for rights, equality and justice.
