For five years Nira Pereg filmed the Holy Sepulchre, Christianity’s holiest site. In The Right To Clean she characteristically evades the obvious and the familiar, letting her sensitive, poetic gaze find unusual angles and capturing details overlooked by the public. The name of the exhibition alludes to the compound’s complex division between the various Christian denominations, the result of centuries of arbitrary acts, small arguments, and international wars. Today, no violation of the status quo is allowed – not even where the right to clean the site is concerned.
