I HAVE A COW ON THE SKY THAT I DON’T SEE THE MILK
2016 Installation

When one leaves a place to improve or save one’s life. On the journey, the once sincere expectation is replaced by a blinded expectation. When arriving at that “somewhere else”, which is usually permanent, there is no return. For the place one has left, changes as much as the person who left.

In her installation, Mekdes Shebata speaks about loss, hope, the pain of starting from scratch, and the struggle for recognition. No matter if someone flees from a life of poverty in the countryside, to a city, or leaves his or her country to seek protection and a better life in another state—it will always lead to irrevocable changes. Abilities become worthless, independent persons become supplicants. Each element in Shebata’s installation, has a meaning: signs of the journey that never ends once one sets off; expectations and hospitality that prove to be false. Shebata speaks about these universal experiences in image, metaphors and in the language of those who never reach their destination. The installation is incorporated with a performance and music which she sets up together with a young group she meet at Landås Asylmottak in Bergen Norway: Isan Maher, Amr Abou Chakra, Lula Tekeste, Hasan Mohamad Abdo and Sebel Wongel.
