The trauma of witnessing the demolition of a home, for example, and the relentless attacks on a national identity tend to be deeply carved into the consciousness, breeding desperation and fear. Palestinian artist Mohamad Joha, whose collection of works titled "Inside Out" are now up at Artspace Hamra, does not trivialize the Israeli erasure of private homes. No one who lives in this region can be unaware of the Palestinian people's (sometimes multiple) forced displacement since 1948 . The title of this exhibition suggests that this is precisely what Joha had in mind.A home is typically considered a defensive stronghold, a barricade against external threats. This series of paintings depicts the home in its most vulnerable and complex state.
