PROJECTS 87, 2008

MoMA - The Museum of Modern Art, New York City, US.

In this project I had showcased Cycle Spun (2007), three discrete video loops that functioned together as a trilogy and a triptych of moving images. Each of the videos depicted a performative act of spinning or a circular motion that I had carried out against Israeli landscape backdrops.

In the wall-sized projection DeadSee (2005), a cord connected 500 watermelons, creating a six-meter long raft in the shape of a spiral on the salt-saturated waters of the Dead Sea. Secured within this sculptural configuration, I floated with an arm outstretched toward a collection of fruits that were punctured by a chord; wounded by this process, the watermelons’ intensely red flesh was revealed. The nautilus form gradually unfurled, leaving the surface of the water a nearly monochromatic azure, and my own body exposed.
