not FOR SALE لَيْسَ لِلبَيْعِ

“not FOR SALE” is a new Art Project by Sameh Al Tawil 2017 explores the idea of borders, boundaries and lines which are crossed when people traverse physical, psychological and symbolic spaces. Across the world, political, environmental and social events are generating a mass movement of people who seek better, more hopeful lives beyond familiar borders of home and country. The journeys they are make are often perilous; the borders they encounter are frequently transitory, nebulous, and arbitrarily drawn.

“ليس للبيع” هو مشروع فني جديد للفنان سامح الطويل 2017 يستكشف فكرة الحدود، والقيود والخطوط التي يتم تخطيها عندما تجتاز الناس المساحات الجسدية والنفسية والرمزية. في جميع أنحاء العالم، ونتيجة للأحداث البيئية والاجتماعية والسياسية تولد حركة جماهيرية من الناس الذين يسعون للوصول لحياة أفضل، أكثر تفاؤلا أبعد من الحدود المألوفة كحدود الأوطان. رحلات البحث والهجرة تلك غالبا ما تكون محفوفة بالمخاطر. الحدود التي يواجهونها هي في كثير من الأحيان عابرة، غامضة، وضعت بشكل تعسفي لا انساني.
