In “1998-2011 / ١٩٩٨-٢٠١١”, Nadia Refaei explores how family photographs and other records act as vestiges of ‘homeland’ — and how they can be reworked and re-contextualised to express loss and longing for place.

Using processes of destruction and reconstruction, the artist’s family records are reinterpreted into new forms.

Situated within the context of forced distance caused by the Syrian conflict, this work questions how — and to what extent — place and ‘homeland’ is mythologised by diasporic communities.
