The Israel Museum debut of actress and artist Raida Adon (born 1972), displaying her new video work Strangeness – an epic and poetic work addressing identity, refugees, and the yearning for a home. This narrative is comprised of powerful and dream-like images and is set in a location that is at once surreal and yet rooted in the local landscape. Strangeness evokes conflicting emotions of fragility and stability, wandering and permanence, as Adon shifts between her personal and collective identities, both Palestinian and Israeli. This work makes an important statement with a powerful urgency, transcending the local and the political and striving for the universal and human.
Also on display are preparatory sketches and sculptural objects incorporated into the work.
