Embryo, 2019

Embryo is part of the “Grafted Land” Series of maps, a series in which segments of conflicted areas are first surgically removed from the body of the map, then dressed and finally stitched with a green thread.

In the present work the severed segment, bearing an uncanny resemblance to an embryo, depicts the historical area of Judea & Samaria also known as the West Bank since 1948.

Lacking yet a definite name and political status, this Embryo-map is connected to a disembodied motherland by an umbilical cord of green threads.
