Eden Lazaness / art /  Three Dimentions

Jerusalem

"Jerusalem" is an art project combining a gallery exhibit with street art.

The gallery exhibit compose a Jerusalem map printed on one hundred and fifty 20 by 20 centimetres ceramic tiles. The total size of the work is 3 meters by 2 meters. The printed map is missing all Arab and religious neighborhoods, and only consist of neighborhoods a secular person or a tourist will travel to. It is edited in such a way a non experienced eye wont notice anything is missing.

In the street art pieces, all neighborhoods name signs was marked with a Cactus sprayed on them. Neighborhoods that was deleted from the installation map were not marked. The Cactus fruit used to separate land territory in Arab culture, and also is a symbol of the new Jewish Zionist since Israel was declared as a country.

Symbolic Depiction Highlighting Relationships Between Elements

Map is defined as "Symbolic Depiction Highlighting Relationship between Elements". This definition is illustrated through an installation work of three transparent maps.

The three maps are the three Jerusalems in existence: Secular Jewish / Arabic / Orthodox Jewish. The maps are parallel and yet separated, similar to the actual life in the city.

The city that was "joined together" struggles to keep the slogan valid. Jerusalem in this work reveals a schizophrenic city, with three different and distinctive realities, identities, that will never meet each other.

Transfiguration of a Tribe

The transfiguration of an object alters its functionality.

Once an African Horn, purposed to summon the tribe.
Transformed into a plastic Vuvuzella, producing intense noise, functions as an act of protest or casting misfortune to a rival.
Metamorphoses into bronze candle sticks, a silent symbol for luck and gathering people.

The same object, speechless, still.
Returning to be what it never was.
