Intelligence Memory Trace: Erasures by Fazal Sheikh

Fazal Sheikh’s Erasures seeks to explore the legacies of the Arab-Israeli war after 1948, which resulted in the establishment of the State of Israel. Taken from 2010 to the present, the collection of images indicate that conflict cannot simply be shown from one side of the conflict or the other, and that there is resonating trauma on both sides of the conflict. They reveal both a past and a present deeply wounded by the trauma that was indicative of the war itself. Memory Trace presents photographs of ruins, landscapes, and portraits of both Arab-Israelis and Palestinians affected by the war.

Presented in the Storefront for Art and Architecture, the collection is both public and private thanks to the openings in the street-facing wall. The inside of the wall is covered with selections of the Palestinian side of the Separation Wall on the outskirts of the Palestinian town of ‘Anata, making tangible the divide between cultures following the war.
