After a packed season of events in 2008 championing Arab art in London, Le Violon Bleu opens APERTURE 27,000; a group exhibition of Palestinian photography featuring four artists from Palestine and its Diaspora; Sama Alshaibi, Anisa Ashkar, Rana Bishara and Rula Halawani. Referring to the land mass of historic Palestine, (27,000 square kilometres) the exhibition title introduces the issues of displacement, loss and identity which are explored by the artists and their connection to occupied Palestine and Israel. This visceral collection of photography takes as its departure each artist's personal experience of a shifting homeland, but also resonates with the wider international concepts of ethnic migration and dislocation.
