I Once Entered a Garden is an installation by Bissane Al Charif and Chrystèle Khodr in collaboration with Waël Ali.
The project questions the first sexual experiences and their relation to the violent social metamorphosis that follows the series of wars in the Middle East from 1939 until today. The work is based on testimonies of persons from different generations from Palestine, Iraq, Lebanon and Syria.
The installation is an immersive experience in intimate memories swaying between the fiction and the documentary.
