Zyara S6, E1 – Rim El Jundi

Play Video
Rim El Jundi is a Lebanese visual artist. Twenty years ago, Rim had a health incident that almost cost her life. Being that close to death changed her a lot on the inside. Back when that experience was still fresh, she used to talk about it and its impact on her life and artwork. But with time, she no longer had the desire to mention that memory as it became part of the past, yet the current times which are burdened with the pandemic (COVID 19), death, lockdowns and isolation brought that memory back to the surface. Talking about it became a need, perhaps because the concept of remembering is the same as that of surviving death.
