about the project
Suspense of Hodophobia – The Wishing Well (2016)
The work is a sound performance and sound installation made for the RE/viewing Jerusalem #2: REturn at the Qalandiya International Contemporary Art Festival from 5-31 October 2016. The project was created and performed during a recidency i Jerusalem in cooperation with Ea Ørum and the Palestinian Art Court – Al Hoash.
MAKE A WISH! At the public garden Abna Alquds (Sons of Jerusalem) a sound installation performance creates a wishing well. Different rhythms of water and ambiguous environments create a space that’s connected with essence of life as well as one of the current problems in Palestinian society. Water isn’t present.
On the first RE-Viewing Jerusalem: REturn tour dreams was collected among the audience at a sound performance. The recorded dreams was sampled live with the sound of water – recorded form tap water, holy water, the Dead Sea, the Mediterranean Sea, the West Bank, Tel Aviv, Jaffa, Jericho, Jerusalem and more.
The final sampling of “The Wishing Well” was exhibited during three RE-Viewing Jerusalem tours on October 16th, 22st, 29th and November 5th at the Abna Alquds garden.
