Every Body Knows
The series “Every Body Knows” questions the borders between victimhood and victimizing. The problems at the center of this work revolve around ethical demands of self accusation and nostalgic longing for self justification. The series consists of paintings arranged by four “families” of characters: the Blindfold, the Vomiters, the Middays and the Waiters. The images of these characters steam from real events at the basis of the political atmosphere in Israel-Palestine, such as detainments, strip-searches, harassments, violence and torture. I see this work as creating a visual echo of public discourses that weave a camouflage around such events.
