A Tale of Two States Naoko TakaHashi

A Tale of Two States

Opening Exhibition at Al-Ma'mal

Thursday March 19th at 19:00 in the presence of the artist


The exhibition is in partnership with The British Council and Ford Foundation


A Tale of Two States is an exhibition of the project produced during and through the artist-in-residence program at Al-Ma'mal Foundation in 2007. The title of the show borrows its name from the novel written in 1859 'A Tale of Two Cities' by Charles Dickens, of a story about two cities, Paris as the dangerous place and London as the (temporarily)safe spot, during the French revolution. This fictional novel shows social revolution and personal self-sacrifice, a conception of rebellion and human nature.

The project focuses on 'real' and also power relationship within the society through social interaction. Although the project does not have direct relationship to the  narrative in the novel  itself, and it relates more to the problematic environment in Palestine, they speak about the two states, two authorities, one as 'repressed place' and the other as 'protected place'. - Naoko TakaHashi
