ALAA MINAWI

LEBANON

my light is your light... tells the story of the uncertainty of being. The six life-sized figures made of curved neon tubes stand on a dock as though they have just arrived from far away.They are a family of refugees, conceived by artist alaa minawi (indeed, without capitals). minawi is, like his father and grandfather, a Palestinian refugee living in Lebanon.
