Low Relief II, 2004
Four channel video and sound installation, 5:40 min.
'Low Relief II' documents an example of civil demonstration, in protest against the wrongs caused by the building of the 'separation fence' (the term coined by the authorities). It also provides a record of the exertion of increased military power over a civilian population. The embossed effect achieved in this work is more pronounced and in this way recalls classical bas-relief scenes depicting historic wars, and the chronicle of committing the history of the victorious to stone.
