A Monument For All Those Times

A Monument For All Those Times Everything Didn't Change, cement, sand, dimensions variable, installation view, 2018

Israel has almost 3,000 memorial monuments for fallen soldiers. Whether state built or private endeavors, this is an enormous number taking into account the size of the country and population. Using (broken) concrete blocks applied by military and police forces to prevent movement, to create trail-marker cairns, my monument points to the obstruction of the peace process and lack of leadership that can change our course. Choosing to commemorate the peace process instead of the casualties of the war challenges what we choose to glorify and asks to steer the conversation towards the utmost necessity of finding political (rather than military) ways out of this deadlock.
