Judy Price is a London based artist who works with video, sound, photography and installation. For her exhibition at Danielle Arnaud Contemporary Art she presents a number of works from lengthy research in Israel and Palestine. 

Price has comissioned the Norwegian sound artist Maia Urstad to construct the sound elements for her video exhibition. By incorporating ambient sounds from the Eye Hospital in East Jerusalem, an emotionally charged and at times abstract composition creates a poetic film that draws the viewer into a thought provoking space with the work rather than didactic.

A number of small vignettes, like moving stills are placed around the gallery presenting night shots from different locations in Israel and the Palestinian territories. Caught moments with partial visibility they allude to a landscape filled with trepidation, in flux, intense and unheimlich.

The film material has been shot in a number of locations in Israel and the Palestinian territories, including a vestige of the British, St Johns Eye Hospital in East Jerusalem.
