The Scars of David

By Jan Grarup

July 16th - 30th Oct 2005

Grarup's exhibit "The Scars of David" brings together his award winning work from Israel and Palestine; “The boys from Ramallah”, a glimpse into the lives of the Palestinian youth of the west bank town of Ramallah and “The boys from Hebron”, a similar look at the youth of the Israeli settlement town of Hebron.

Grarups work questions the extreme pressure applied on the youth by violence and fear that surrounds them. He provides us with an insight into the conditioning of a population at a very young age, for a conflict that is being pass through the generations.
