KHALIL RABAH: USPA, LONDON OFFICE

ROSE ISSA PROJECTS, LONDON
31 JANUARY–11 MARCH 2009

'United States of Palestine Airlines, London Office' is an installation by the Palestinian artist Khalil Rabah, who lives in Ramallah.

The installation includes a large model plane comprising the logos of various airlines, a map with haphazardly coloured boundaries, empty display cabinets, five clocks whose hands are frozen at different times, and a sofa with no client to welcome. This wonderful artwork speaks better of the present situation, dreams and aspirations of the Palestinians than any book or film.
