Artist statement

> A statement at the exhibition, Stedelijk Museum, 's-Hertogenbosch, NL 2007.

This exhibition is not a description of a war or a daily death lived in Iraq,
It is a birth certificate of a Plague that filled the air in the name of “Freedom”,
a freedom that has been dreamed of by the Iraqis for generations.
I invite you to read the picture, not to look at it.
