‘Would I Fit in Yours?’, questions the recurring conflicts that Beirut had suffered from; most of these conflicts are the ramifications of the 1975 civil war. In an attempt to understand the conflicts she personally experienced, Souraya Kreidieh, reflects on similar past events. The project start with a conversation between her and her mother, that evolves to a conversation between two generations of women (the war and the post war generation). The project creates a platform for the artist to document untold stories as she looks for answers for uncertainties. ‘Is it worth it?’ The stories create a space of overlapping narratives, where the concepts of hope, promises, regaining faith and giving up are investigated.
