The Memory of the Place Returns in a Historical Context
This contemporary art project The Memory of the Place Returns in a Historical Context deals with the lives and memories of people who used to live in either Erbil Citadel or Amina Sorka in Sulaymaniyah. After these sites were transformed into museums, the memories of their former inhabitants are at risk of getting lost. The project seeks to restore their memories.
Hemin, born in 1973 in Erbil, and Sherko, born in 1978 in Sulaymaniyah, are Kurdish contemporary artists graduated from the College of Fine Arts at the University of Sulaymaniyah.
