"Osiris was slain by Seth, who tore the corpse into 14 pieces and flung them over Egypt. Eventually, Isis found and buried all the pieces, thereby giving new life to Osiris, who remained in the underworld as ruler and judge. This identification with Osiris, however, did not imply resurrection, for even Osiris did not rise from the dead. Instead, it signified the renewal of life. Projet Osiris tells the story of our shattered selves after the August 4 Beirut port explosion. How many of us repeatedly said they could have died. How many of us got our skin and members stitched back into place. After the catastrophe, we might not resurrect intact and unscratched but just like Osiris, we pledge to pour our energy into creating life through our works."
