Presence #7. Two Lands for Two People: Find the Border

Installation of ground on canvas of 1.20 m х 1.20 m and two documentary photographs displaying the artist collecting the grounds.
Galina Bleikh collected the ground in an Arabic village Azaria in the environs of Jerusalem, and in Ramat Eshkol, a Jewish neighborhood of Jerusalem. She then put those grounds on two halves of the canvas. There is no visible difference between these two grounds.
The artist makes a statement that all is one and undivided, and the borders exist only in human perception. The wrong way of conscious leads us to innumerable conflicts, dissociations and destructions.
