A plant in the farm Exhibition
Hachava Gallery, Israel
2009

Celebrating the jewish “Tu Bishvat” holiday, the celebration of nature, this show was all about objects combining real vegetation.  My work was a planted olive tree in a rough wooden box. On the side of the box an “X-Rayed” mirror image of the tree was drawn, suggesting a human skeleton to the tree, a biological connection between human and natural.  The box can be viewed and interpreted anywhere between an industrial packaging to a burial cabinet, also referring to the politically charged meaning of olive tree and its significance in Israel.
