Omar Fakhoury erects a flag at a site in Dalieh inscribed with the Arabic translation of “the sea” (al bahr), invoking the idea of the sea claiming back its territory: Dalieh. Fakhoury intended to reference the practice commonly employed by political parties and the government in claiming neighbourhoods, lands, and geographical “appartenance”. The flag was visible along the coast.
