I chose this superstition because I wanted to explore justified and unjustified beliefs. What do we believe? What is the truth? And why? The ‘superstition’ I chose to work with was the act of burning incense. It is believed that burning incense wards off evil and attracts blessings. -Ruba AlWakeal
ابعد البركه و دخل الشر (ward off blessings and bring in evil) is a collaboration between Ruba AlWakeal and Midi Onodera. Ruba AlWakeal works with topics such as identity and religion that they explore through video art, performance, and sometimes sculpture.
