Jaffa Port main square 3-21/11/11
Opening 3/11/11 8 PM
The Arab spring erupted on January 2011 and sent the Arab world into a turmoil and still does.
Revolutions turns the world upside down and reveals hidden places and people.
The Exhibition in the old port of Jaffa brings the story of the revolutions in Egypt and Libya (and of the demonstrations in Israel) with frames glued to the floor and walls of the port.
In the Beginning god differed heaven from water. Then he created earth and a place to wash clothes – a place for gossiping, soaping, washing, and drying in the sun to beautify the court and the street.
When we stopped (the ones who did) to dry the laundry in the open, we gave up some very old and comforting thing that is even more ancient then the washing machine & the electric dryer.
The exhibition brings laundry back to its natural place. Reviving the color which is hidden behind the politically correct laundry covers that turns the city into a gray, descent, boring space.
There is nothing like a good pair of underpants to remind us where we are coming from.
The Nachlat Binyamin Fair ground – the art & handcraft market of Tel Aviv & the junction with the Carmel market & Shenkin street, or the old port of Jaffa is the natural place to dry laundry
The Face of Jaffa
Jaffa is the Levant.
Levant according to Oxford dictionary is the place where the sun rises – the eastern Mediterranean and its islands.
It is a mixture of languages, religions, faces, building styles, names and food.
But what the dictionary fails to write, is that the Levant is a synonym for the unexpected .
