REACTION FORMATION

MUSRARA MIX - ART SISTANCE Jerusalem | 

curator Sharon Horodi  | 2015

This work deals with collected pieces of memories reshaped in time, rhythm, and order of occurrence, to fit a naïve daydream narrative of nature and existence.

These pieces, detached from a time continuum, heal the dystopia of the normal time-realm sequence. Videos in reverse depict a chopped down tree re-erected and revived, captured birds freed, and the momentary touch of a butterfly on a hand prolonged forever.

These scenes reflect actions as emotionally charged reactions in our memory, which attempt to create a better, alternate narrative to the simple chronological transcript of life.
