Her work deals with silenced historical narratives, movement, resistance and exchange. Books, libraries and translations reoccur in her work. Her installation ex libris 2010-2012 will be on the gallery's first floor. This installation commemorates the approximately 30,000 books taken from Palestinian homes, libraries and institutions in 1948. Six thousand of these books are kept in the Jewish Nationa and University Library in Jerusalem. They are designated "A.P." (Abandoned Property). Jacir photographed these books with her cell phone during visits to the library over two years.
This is one of the installations and works by Jacir to be shown.
