One Foot Planted: Upcoming Events

The Hadassah-Brandeis Institute is proud to present Ayelet Carmi and Meirav Heiman: One Foot Planted. Israeli artists Carmi and Heiman create ambitious video works that explore the impact that politics and conflict have on Israeli women in times of crisis. In their work, Israel is redefined as a mythical and post-apocalyptic world, which feminine bodies must ritually traverse through extreme physical acts. Both the ritual of processing the Israel Trail and counting the Omer become ungendered and labor-intensive sites of communication between bodies, land, machines, and the movement of time itself. In creating these spectacles and invented worlds, the artists’ combined interests in cinematography, live-action performance, group dynamics and mechanical inventions are all at play.
