Sahar Damoni è nata e cresciuta in un pezzo di terra controverso e vive in una realtà molto complicata. Come artista femminile palestinese, ha non poche barriere da infrangere, ma l'aspetto politico della sua identità aggiunge ulteriori frustrazioni. In DO NOT TITLE ME, esprime, osserva e vaga attraverso la sua frustrazione. Tenta di catturare la realtà e il futuro del suo corpo palestinese individuale fisicamente, mentalmente e socialmente. “Accetta la posizione in cui ti trovi, non forzarla, non spingerla. Il tuo corpo alla fine si lascerà andare, sii paziente con te stesso, concentrati semplicemente sul respiro. Non preoccuparti di come appari. Concentrati su come ti senti”.

Sahar Damoni was born and raised in a controversial piece of land and lives in a severely complicated reality. As a female Palestinian artist, she has more than enough barriers to break yet the political aspect of her identity adds more frustrations. In DO NOT TITLE ME, she expresses, observes, and wanders through her frustration. She attempts to capture the reality and the future of her individual Palestinian body physically, mentally, and socially. “Accept the position you are in, do not force it, do not push it. Your body will let go eventually, Just be patient with yourself, simply focus on the breathing. Do not worry about what you look like. Focus on how you feel”
