This work takes seriously the fact of different nationalisms in Yemen by relating three views of the same event to a potent symbol of Yemen’s collective identity – its flag.
The work does not demand an assessment of the truth of an event in Yemen, nor does it require that the event be judged equally in import by all. It requires only that the viewer accepts that different, plural, views of events, facts and narratives are legitimate, in Yemen as elsewhere.
This work is part of a body of work on drawn and painted views on politics and conflict. That body of work is available at the following blog address: blackandwhiteandthings.wordpress.com .
