Tanya Habjouqa's The Sacred Space Oddity is an elegiac meditation on the interaction of the physical and psychological space encompassed in the loaded, often effacing, phrase 'Holy Land.' Challenging both reductive media narratives and the simplifying mythologies that emerge in conflict, the work engages a diverse cast of characters, modulating between realist and surrealist aesthetics deployed against the backdrop of everyday occurrences in the lives of Palestinians and Israelis.
