Jerusalem-based artist Raeda Saadeh has been likened to renowned conceptual artist Cindy Sherman for her installations, performances and photography. Saadeh says her work examines ideas of gender, identity and displacement, as in this work, titled "Hospital." The Palestinian artist, who had her first solo exhibit in London earlier this year, often puts herself as the subject of her pieces — be it in an absurd position or clad as Vermeer's “The Milkmaid.”
