Snake Shall I Become (the 4th hour)
Curator: Irena Gordon
Shown as part of the Mifal HaPayis greenhouse project "If A Tree Falls in A Forest", Petah Tikva Museum of Art
Snake Shall I Become (the 4th hour) deals with the mythological interrelationships between the human arm and the snake. Both are a central part of the Egyptian Hieroglyphs and are inextricably linked in the biblical story of Moses’s Staff and Pharaoh's sorcerer.
In this project, I examined the close connection between the figure of the snake and the development of ancient Egyptian script. Inspired by it I created a movement notation that focuses specifically on the arm.
In the exhibition human-scale copper sculptures alongside a projection of a two-channel video of the Arm choreography.
The choreography was created in collaboration with the dancers Ortal Atsbaha and Dor Frank, and in collaboration with the snakes Saharan horned viper no. 47 and Saharan horned viper no. 48.
The exhibition was supported by the Israel Ministry of Culture and Sport Fund prize for Emerging Artists and Mifal HaPayis
