Maklouba is frequently designated as the Palestinian national dish, and is very popular among Palestinians. The dish includes meat, rice and fried vegetables placed in a pot, which is then flipped upside down when served — hence the name ‘maklouba’, which translates literally as “upside-down”.
Although Maklouba has many different variations, this apron shows what is the one and only recipe for its artist, Ayed Arafah.
- Ayed Arafeh (PS)
Ayed Arafah was born in Jerusalem and grew up in Dheisheh refugee camp. Nowadays, he works and lives in Ramallah. He has a BA degree in contemporary visual art from The International Academy of Art and a BA in social work from Al Quds Open University. Combining classic and contemporary media, he explores the conceptual image that aims to motivate a better understanding about the self (my self and others) in relation with society’s issues related to politics, culture and economics. His aim is to engage with different levels of society.
