> DESCRIPTION

This is the first UK exhibition of recent drawings by this renowned activist artist John Halaka. Landscapes of Desire is inspired by the ruins of Palestinian homes and villages destroyed during and after the 1948 exodus. Depicting the ruins of stone homes from devastated Palestinian villages such as Kafr Bir’im, Lifta, Al-Bassa, A’mka and Kuikat, these images are drawn with ink and rubber stamped words.  The repeated stamping of the words “remember,” “resist,” “return,” “rebuild” and  “forgive”, defines the forms, textures and tones of the landscapes, becoming a visual mantra.
