Within These Walls - Carol Archer displays a moving photographic installation documenting showing a glimpse of the Palestinian people while they struggle to live their daily lives.
October 6 - 9pm
Road London N16 6UN
Within These Walls creates an extraordinary document and testimony to the people in Palestine who are struggling to live their daily lives. During the preparation of this installation many issues were raised about the display of such material and the need to avoid alienating or patronising the audience, or compromising the subject. A further danger would be arousing opposition from some viewers before they have engaged with the subject.
The challenge, which we have accepted, is how to address such reactions and create a dialogue that springs directly from the material shown. By challenging our assumptions we must question if the reason it may be problematic is because it forces us to look in the mirror and ask if we may be part of the problem.
Within These Walls will encourage visitors to respond to the themes and issues raised.
Carol Archer has visited Palestine and Israel three times and has just returned from five months study at a university in the West Bank. While there she witnessed the construction of the Apartheid Wall / Security Fence and the effects of the Israeli Occupation on the everyday life of the people living there.
