By Susan Mansfield:

"The three distinct shows are highly contrasting. Upstairs, Israeli artist Nira Pereg, presents films made in the Cave of the Patriarchs in the Old City of Hebron in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Believed to the place where Abraham is buried, it is among the most revered of religious sites for Jews, Muslims and Christians. Following a massacre in 1994 in which 29 Muslims were killed, it has been strictly divided into Jewish and Muslim areas, reinforced by bullet proof walls and checkpoints and the presence of the Israel Defence Force.

Pereg’s two-screen film, Abraham Abraham Sarah Sarah, focusses on the occasional days when, for special festivals, each faith gains access to the whole building for a 24-hour period. She films the moments of changeover: carpets being rolled up and stored, religious artefacts placed behind locked screens, Hebrew banners hung to cover up Arabic inscriptions. By homing in on the detail, the practical, the ordinary, she hints at the depths of division which surround this contested space."
