Unscene

This is an exhibition of work by four Palestinian artists seen for the first time in London. Their work addresses some of the issues of the politically charged region of Palestine. They challenge the invisibility of the Palestinian people and their representation in the Western media.

Jumana Emil Abboud's uses different media, including video, performance and text to depict both loss and resiliance.

Khalil Rabah represented Palestine at the 1998 Biennials in São Paulo and Sydney. His conceptual installations use local materials and traditions but aim to go beyond national and geographical boundaries.

Raeda Saadeh is one of Palestine's emerging artists. Through performance, video and installation she focuses on displacement and identity and gender.


Raeda Saadeh

Ahlam Shibli's recent solo exhibition at the Ikon Gallery was described as conveying "ordinary lives lived in extraordinary circumstances". Her latest series includes photographs of the landscapes of Bedouin unrecognised villages and in officially recognised townships.

Unscene challenges us to open our eyes. It shows us that in a world full of images, atrocities can be carried out in full view of the world because we choose not to look. At the same time it defies an understanding of Palestine shaped solely by images and reports of its violent conflicts, shifting our gaze to the textures of everyday life.
