Growing up in a war zone means being permanently inhabited by politics and violence. In Losing It, Samaa Wakim questions the way in which this experience has played a part in the construction of her identity, exploring how the trauma of past generations manifests itself in her own body. The Palestinian artist returns to the fantastical worlds she imagined for herself as a child to overcome fear and survive growing up under occupation. As the terror takes over again, her world disintegrates, her landmarks become blurred and the boundary between reality and fiction disappears, both in physical space and in sound. The dialogue between Samar Haddad King’s live music and Samaa Wakim’s voice creates a universe in which the sounds that might have frightened or comforted her intermingle, embodying a past and present that obscure the future.
