Very touched by the Nobel Peace Price received by Nadia Murad. Until tonight she was for me the anonymous Yesidi women, who’s photo portrait was made by Johanna De Tessieres and on witch I spend hours drawing for our EXILT exhibition pictures and video. At the time, she was hiding under a fake name, in a secret camp in Irak with other Yesidi women former sexual slave of Daesh. May her people find with this Nobel Price more recognition for their suffering and genocide, on their long path to reconstruction.
