Pejac . MOTHERS ARTISTS / AL-AZRAQ, JORDAN - SYRIAN REFUGEE CAMP

Al-Azraq, JORDAN

‘A mother’s creativity is something truly admirable – how they manage to create a special world to protect their child by transforming reality into a better place,”  PEJAC

This work was made in the refugee camp of Al-Azraq where over 30.000 Syrians live and 200 more arrive each day. 56% of its population are children, while a third of them live only with their mother as the head of the family and to whom this artwork is dedicated to. In a creative and poetic manner the mother and child silhouette are compared to one in a painting by Spanish post impressionist Sorolla in the early 1900’s Playa de Valencia a la luz de la Mañana (Valencia Beach in the morning light).

Pejac . ROTATION / JABAL AL-WEIBDEH AMMAN, JORDAN

Jabal Al.Weibdeh Amman, JORDAN

“This work is a double tribute. On the one hand I’m talking about Jordan, a country that has a long history of hospitality towards refugees. Today, for example, there are over 1.6 million Syrian refugees and over 2 million Palestine refugees in Jordan. On the other hand without knowing it, a big part of Jordan’s population and its future is being determined by, is in the hands of, the kids.”  PEJAC

Rotation was made in the bohemian and popular neighbourhood of Jabal Al-Weibdeh in Amman, right next to a kids playground and close by the impressive King Abdullah I Mosque.

This project was made with the support of the Spanish Embassy in Amman.
