Dressed Land, 2012

In this installation at The Women Artists Series Galleries, Douglass Library, Rutgers University – New Brunswick (NJ), a white dress covered with gauzes and fragments from closure maps hangs  surrounded by 7 Wounded Maps. Below the disembodied dress, white gauzes covered in plaster and red stains with green spools fixed to the ground and sewn onto the dress. The dress was worn during the performances held while sewing the Wounded Maps (2009-2012).
In 2016, in “All that Remains” exhibited at the Zaritsky Artists House in Tel Aviv and symbolising a bleeding Mother Land, the dress hangs  above a Wounded Map, made of fabric, maps of Jerusalem, gauzes, plaster, wax, pigment, earth and green threads. The work was exhibited together with two videos, DADA-JERUSALEM (2014) and The Spring (2015)
