Middle of the Edge, 2019, Mixed Media Installation, Part of the Group Show "Reference" at the Kav 16 Gallery.
This installation was part of a show at Kav 16 art gallery. The gallery is set in a marginalized neighborhood, adjacent to my own, and where I happened to teach art in a local school. Requested to refer to local surroundings, I chose to work in respect to a local community garden set right where that neighborhood ends and mine starts. Drawn to its location on the fringe, I saw it as a reverberation of local habits and culture, rejected history and regeneration.
I created an indoor capsule of the garden, surfacing content I felt was present in it, like neglect and devotion, decay and beatification, and human presence through absence.
The most dominant material in the installation was live plants which I planted, sowed and grew inside things I found and collected, all being objects attesting to human economics, habits and hobbies: emptied tobacco packaging, a faux-leather couch I unstuffed, bags of soil. These were all made of plastic sheathing and served as a skin to contain the soil and the plants.
During the course of the show the plants had to adapt to the constraints forced on them, or die. In those two months there were cycles of growth and wilting, some sped up while others slowed down, interrupted and disturbed by the artificial lighting, the lack of sunlight and of insects. There were plants that survived and plants that wilted, others even sprung and grew.
I collaborated with sound and multimedia artist Alon Peretz in creating a sound piece that continuously played. It served as a heart beat for the installation, rendered by recording the noises at the garden and then processing them in the studio. The sound beat out of a subwoofer, slightly shaking an unfired clay jug I had cast years before. The jug had spent years wrapped and protected and was exposed for the occasion and set up on the speaker as a personal relic displayed on a pedestal.
