Mixed media installation
Four sound channels and objects
10 minutes duration
In recent years, a number of far-right national-religious movements in Israel actively seek to instate the Third Temple. The movements employ craftsmen in preparation for the operation of the temple: among them a sculptor, a carpenter, a tailor, and an architect.
The installation consists of four objects with four sound channels. Each channel and object document another craftsman and his/her work on the future of Jerusalem.
In the installation, the aspiration to bring salvation becomes matter - a stone, a raw plastic, a thread - as a continuous technique that produces physicality to the cosmic idea of redemption - or an apocalypse - depending on whom you ask.
The site-specific work was exhibited at Ha'Mesila Park in Jerusalem, overlooking the Palestinian village of Beit-Zafafa, and its mosque.
