Students Rebuild Corner Stone Art by Nati Shamia Opher


The work is a cornerstone, offering a new point of view of the loaded reciprocity between two nations forced to share the same territory. Semblance of a Sabra. An unresolved paradox of nationality. A mute testimony to the borders of deserted villages. The metaphoric evolution of the plant into the figure of the Hebrew pioneer. A representation of symbolic healing. The patchwork of cactus leaves brought by the students from the various regions in which they dwell. The leaves carry the concrete genetic stores of ancient bushes, as well as the symbolic evolution of the subjects they represent.
