Signposts from a contested landscape

Palestine, 2010

TYPE: experimental

CONTRIBUTION: photography

During my first DAAR residency in Palestine I explored through photography visible and almost unvisible signs of the Israeli occupation. On my return a body of photos was acquired as part of the permanent exhibition at MUFF – Museum of Frontiers in Forte di Bard (Aosta, Italy). The same photos, accompanied by a brief tale, were published in the online magazine Arena of Speculation. The aim of this work was to capture, with eerie naïvety – as if they were postcards – the banality of landscapes where an excruciating oppression is nested, and spatio-cide is put into place.
