A View of Palestine
By Khaled Jarr
The Pevensie children had the right idea. Why spend hours travelling to another country when wall you have to do is walk through a wardrobe?
It is true that most of us don't have access to magical furniture, but one artist has found an equally exciting way. Up until the 3rd August, you can journey to Palestine by climbing through a hole in the wall. The exhibition, Whole in the Wall by Khaled Jarrar can be seen for free at the Ayyam Gallery, and is an exploration of what life is like in occupied Palestine.
The exhibit feature photography, sculpture, and video footage, but the main focus in on a concrete wall with a hole the shape of Palestine. To see the rest of the art, you must clamber through this hole which in a way symbolises the struggles civilians have to face.
