For fear of idolatry, an estimated 95% of Mecca and Medina’s historic sites since 1985 (most over a thousand years old) have been demolished. In continuation with the artist’s previous work, (such as Mecca,1-11 and Medina, 1-10), Lost 1-28 re-imagines a handful of these sites: a series of homes, tombs, wells, mosques and cemeteries built around the birth of Islam. Although the majority of these spaces/places have been destroyed in an exodus of development around Masjid Al-Nabawwi in Medina and Masjid Al-Haram in Mecca (two of the most important houses of worship for the Muslim world), other sites too have been cataloged here- including a 2012 demolition of tombs in Timbuktu.  Lost 1-28 is a running glimpse into histories lost, stories denied.
