Funded artist: Ilana Salama Ortar
The exhibition offers a female focus on migration, uprooting, flight and exile in conflict zones. On view are hand-blown glass capsules containing mementos related to displacement and associated trauma, works on paper demonstrating calligraphic belonging or rejection according to ethnic identity as expressed in the Hebrew word 'shibboleth' and two video works.
All these artworks highlight two essential themes of political activism in Ilana Salama Ortar's work: on the one hand, the promotion of coexistence and the pursuit of non-violence, after 100 years of violence in Palestine/Israel, and on the other hand, the visibility and audibility of older, Algerian women with migration experiences, who are doubly invisible in public space, both as ageing women and as migrants.
