Mermaids [Erasing the Border of Azkelon], 2011

Video, 12:16 min

Three young women repetitively enter the frame at various speeds, ejected by the sea; they fall face down, sending their arms forward on and upon the seashore. They scratch the smooth dense sand of the shore with their bare nails. They create deep marks, which the waves soon wash away.

Mermaids (Erasing the Border of Azkelon) was filmed

on the border between the Gaza strip and the town of Ashkelon (Zikim Beach).
