Between Presence and Absence / Traces
BETWEEN PRESENCE AND ABSENCE
Between Presence and Absence project is a study of kibbutz houses that were destroyed by fire in northern Israel, creating a social and historical record, as well as a personal poetic and metaphorical impression of destruction and metamorphosis.
Between Presence and Absence is comprised of 4 parts: Photography, Video, Sculpture and Publication.
The video records the demolition of the kibbutz houses and the transfiguration of the landscape –the destruction of the buildings can be viewed as a metaphor for the history of instability and transformation in the region, as well as for a universal sense of reformation and advancement. 2014 HD Video, 25:00 minutes, stereo
