Rehab Nazzal

Art Gallery of Mississauga, 2014


War as a contemporary surveillance concept and its aftermath is explored and revealed by Palestinian Rehab Nazzal with sound, video and the photographic image. The artist acquaints the viewer with contemporary war technology and its destructive and deadly effect on civilians, residential dwellings, infrastructures, and the environment. Creating an immersive environment, the content is emotional and immediate. Majority of the work has been culled from the web revealing the power of image recording and public dissemination technologies of connecting and sharing information. Clearly, military power has become, more than ever, a threat to all residents across the world. This body of work makes visible the tragic conditions in Palestine with particular focus on Gaza, the Negev Prison and the village of Bil’in.
