Homeland and ruins......
As years go by we transform and return. We live the distances and beyond. Are we aware of our journey?
There are failures, victories, occupation and liberation, and protest.
With this confusion, we delve into the storm of facts and falsehoods and we try to hold onto our own love of our country.
We can only seize these memory ruins which we hold fiercely, hoping that our own memories will compensate for our loss.

Fadwa Ramadan’s delicate pencil and ink drawings, featuring the Amazigh script are the feature of Jacaranda Images’ May showcase. Ramadan consistently refers to the circle and the role it plays in nature and life, uncovering the movement which exists within it. The works are inspired from a 2014 journey to Siwa Oasis are from 2017, 2108 and 2020.
‘My trip to Siwa Oasis in Egypt in 2014 triggered a new found interest and passion for this language in its written form. It has inspired my art works. At first, I utilized Amazigh letters to create simple visual forms in monochrome, where the letters played secondary role as symbols in a larger formation, devout of linguistic meaning. My work then evolved to using Amazigh words and poetry, making them the object of my art and giving them center stage.’ Fadwa Ramadan
The Amazigh language is a family of closely related dialects indigenous to North Africa, considered an official language in Morocco (the only country that recognizes the language as such). It is also spoken in Algeria, Mali and Niger. The language has had a written tradition for over 2,200 years, influenced by Tifinagh, Arabic and Latin.
