Conflict Zone is St. Helena artist Nancy Willis’ artistic response to the ISIS led genocide of Yazidis in 2014. Willis followed their story, pained by the brutality and violence against women used as a strategy of war. She felt overwhelmed by the distance and scope of the conflict until an exhibition opportunity in 2017 opened the door for her to turn empathy into artistic action.
