ABOUT THE ARTWORK

In the very place where to put an Israeli or Palestinian flag in one’s window is an assertion of territory and “patriotic” defiance, the artist points up behavioral parallels in the two camps’ claims and counter-claims by inviting citizens to take a seat and sit in session in chairs whose decoration is created from snap-shots of Israeli and Palestinian houses over which flies their respective flag.
The patterns thrown up are revealing and the empty chairs serve as a paradigm for the blockage in settlement of the thorny problem of which Jerusalem remains the epicenter.By laying out these chairs at different points in the town, she offers a critical reading of the links between the two peoples, which may cross over (West Jerusalem), oppose each other (the wall of separation), share common values (places of worship) or gaze in the same direction (desert).
