This exhibition is a reflection on the subject of waiting that resulted in works by artists from Syria. In the project, the artists engage with the concept through their own individual experience where they found themselves forced to either postpone their plans or create an alternative plan. The absence of action, expecting the worst, living for a future, remaining inactive or in a state of neglect for a time, postponing your life and looking forward eagerly to the day "something" happens to release from your fear of endless waiting.
