hiba ali: in the weeds

'in the weeds' is about “mowing the lawn,” war and migration. “mowing the lawn” is an activity that is mandated by Home Owner’s Associations to keep outdoor spaces clean, tidy, and presentable – and it is also a military tactic that murders people, particularly used in Palestine. Linked through the control and manicuring of grass, both of these facets are explored as they are found in settler societies.
