Groundplan drawings (2014-2017) is an on-going collection of drawings made by Syrian friends and relations who are currently living in Europe and the United States, who were forced to leave their homes since war broke out in Syria in 2011. It is likely that they may never return to live in these homes. We ask participants to draw the house as they remember it, including memories of events inside the home, as well as the changes which took place in the structure of the home after and during conflict. Participants experience making memory drawings as a valuable way to document place and events, to be used as evidence and catharsis.
