if every particle were perceived
_if every particle were perceived
installation / an antique bowl, gold leaf, water drops, found objects / 2019
This work can be viewed as a sort of delicate archeology of the present day. Assuming
that the traces of bygone eras are “archived” in the air molecules, the artist attempts, at
least for a little while, to bring the past of the Chifte Haman back to life.
The water droplets, having collected particles from the history of the bathhouse out of
the air, fall with a soft noise, making us conscious of our own transience.
