Salted Lake, 2011


I made shoes covered in heavy salt crystals by suspending them in the saline waters of the Dead Sea. After this, I took them to a frozen lake in the middle of Europe and placed them on the ice. Each shoe melted a big hole in the ice. At night, they finally fell and drowned in the freshwater lake. From the heights of the 3rd strata of the pavilion, they fall and dive downwards burdened with history and gravity. I shot the video in Poland, in the revolutionary city of Gdansk, to create a work that touches upon collective memory and pain.
