The Pyramid Art Center is located in the heart of the Wadi Salib neighborhood of Haifa, an old Arab neighborhood with a long history of friction and clashes between the different social circles. Right in front of the gallery windows, a wealthy entrepreneur received permission to construct a new high-rise building in the center of an historic urban landscape built in an Arab architectural style.
Who are the people who will be housed in the new fancy condominium? How will this affect the social fabric of the neighborhood? What are the real features of the construction company?
The Pyramid Art Center invited me to propose a new work that confronts the delicate reality that is developing.
On the roof of the Pyramid building, we installed a closed-circuit camera documenting the workers, the maneuvering of the crane and the pouring of the concrete that is constantly rising in front of our eyes.
The broadcast is transmitted to a monitor inside the gallery and invites the viewers to observe the work plans and their implementation in the field.
24 hours a day, 7 days a week, we keep an eye on what is happening on the building opposite.
How is the sensitive and complex public sphere of Wadi Salib neighborhood will react to the new accelerated development?
