"SEE NO EVIL, HEAR NO EVIL, SPEAK NO EVIL", 2002
Jerusalem, Israel

See no Evil

The performance takes place in a 19th building situated in downtown Jerusalem. Originally used for Christian Russian women pilgrims, later as the central prison during the British Mandate period, it is now a museum of the Jewish Underground Movement of the time. I sit in a cell, eyes, ears and mouth stopped up with petals. Strains of medieval mystic choral music interrupted intermittently by harsh electronic sounds accompany the piece, which occurs every hour for 15 minutes.

The performance was part of Heara 4 (Big Comment), one of a series of multidisciplinary site-specific events in Jerusalem organized by the Salamanca group.
