    The human body is a word surrounded by restrictions in our Middle Eastern societies. Why do people express such a fear from the body? How could we fear ourselves? Our bodies are the medium that links us to this world and reflects our souls. Every person takes pleasure in a memory that registers facts different from other people. These memories and dreams are revealed on our bodies through body language, expressions of serenity, sadness, happiness and other emotions towards occurring events or recalled facts. Through our body, we can modify our memories that are often stereotyped according to others experiences. We can also develop our memory and dreams through our human experience which represents a mean for excellence, authenticity and distinctiveness to arise. Consequently, every person develops a personal memory enriched by the unique human existence that mirrors on the body through which one can realize dreams. There is nothing impossible to achieve as long as the communication and interaction between the body and the memory are existent. In this solo exhibition, Marwa is focusing on in this human situation that the human body aims to be liberated from and the interaction between the body and the memory and what memories, dreams and aspirations it holds.
