Thoughts on Work Programme 68 in October 2014 at CAC by Jennifer Milarski.
“Nazare revisited her existing moving image work Hic Non Est, created during a residency in Palestine last year, and reconstructed the work in response to the space. The rooms were set up as a visual diary of her Palestinian memories and experiences and the theme of the tree of life was repeatedly visually present, even in the form of an actual olive tree which transformed the space into an organic part of the show. This is one of the best things about CAC that it has the ability to shape shift with each show, if you brought a tree in to a conventional white cube type gallery it would very much be apparent that it had been deliberately brought in an artwork. At CAC the tree looked as if it could’ve grown out of the ground and perhaps the whole exhibition had come about around the tree.” Jennifer Milarski
Hic Non Est , Film I made in collaboration with Andrew Stuart-Buttle is screening at Brighton Palestine Film Festival this weekend at BAC Brighton Arts Club .
Brighton Palestine Film Festival is supported by Brighton & Hove Left Unity and Brighton & Hove Palestine Solidarity Campaign.
The festival will showcase a mixture of documentaries and films by Palestinian actors, directors and producers.
The event will have paid entrance (suggested donation of £2 – £4 depending on your income) and the proceeds will go to Medical Aid for Palestinians, who did fantastic work during the latest Israeli assault on Gaza, Operation Protective Edge.
