Is this your first time in Gaza? An Exhibition of work by Hazem Harb
IS THIS YOUR FIRST TIME IN GAZA? is the first solo UK exhibition by Hazem Harb, one of the most interesting young artists to have emerged from the brutalized Gaza Strip in the last few years. In this selection dating from 2006 to 2009, Harb presents works executed in a number of different formats, ranging from large-scale painting to digital photography, video art and installation. The works develop a number of different themes, one of which is the checkpoint and the suffering it inflicts on the Palestinian traveller.
The exhibition consists of 32 works which include Is This Your First Time in Gaza? (digital photography and video-art), Untitled (six mixed media works on paper), Dance Escape (mixed media on canvas), composed of four “acts” which echo the Israeli war on Gaza in early 2009, Empty Spaces and Erosion Factors (digital photography), as well as a number of large scale paintings.
