I start going east, 2012
8 sheets of Plexiglas (70 x 100 cm each), sandblasted text, inkjet prints
Four fragmented memories of a place are gathered together in the text and photo installation I start going east. The place is not named explicitly in the texts, but can be interpreted as the Occupied Palestinian Territories. The work’s protagonist reflects upon experiences and encounters that take the viewer deeper into the unknown and at times the surreal. The texts, presented as sandblasted foil-text on four sheets of Plexiglas, mix the autobiographical with fiction. They appear to levitate in front of a wall, behind which surfaces in four shades of green are mounted under Plexiglas, one for each of the texts.
