This series as well as others have brought Sasportas’ works to receive meaningful recognition as an artist with clear political relevance. Sasportas represented Israel in the 2007 Venice Biennial, and has presented more than 17 international solo exhibitions during the last decade, in venues such as The Kunsthalle Basel, The Berkeley Museum of Art, San Francisco, The Kunstverein Braunschweig, DA2 Domus Atrium, Salaman ca, and The Israel Museum, Jerusalem. Sasportas is a senior professor at the Bezalel Academy for Art and Design in Jerusalem. She works in Tel Aviv and Berlin and is also a lecturer in the International Academy of Consciousness (Germany and the US).

About Yehudit Sasportas

Yehudit Sasportas is one of the most prominent and prolific Israeli artists working in the local and international art scene today. Her work is fo cused on site-specific installations, which include sculptures, drawings, video and sound works, and call for an intense sensory experience. Her installations have gone through a process of adapting and responding to the architecture of various museum spaces while forming into artworks that present a new way of reading architecture itself, as well as the wid er cultural context it was created in. Her sculptural arrangements deal with a fascinating correspondence taking place between subconscious materials, unspoken and unseen, and the way these layers of informa tion activate conscious areas across the surface. Sasportas’ Active Consciousness films, which were made over a course of more than seven years, present relatively simple actions, yet such that provoke a deep and condense discussion about the manner in which we experience, understand and project our own personal stories on reality.

In this respect, the Liquid Desert project deals with the movement of structures and the lively dialogue between the overt dimension of our life and the hidden one – the one which con tains important information essential for the ac tual movement.

in the manifest physical world.

The site is virtually located in the northern Negev Desert, in southern Israel, a place of deep significance to the artist’s nuclear family. According to tradition, this is the site of a historic dialogue between the human dimension in the form of Abraham and divine presence – as demonstrat ed by the change in Abraham’s name – from Avram to Avraham, introducing the Hebrew let ter ה (H) which symbolizes in the simplest and deepest sense the acknowledgment of God’s

The rooms and levels function as a cinemat ic arena for the emergence of films, as well as unique artistic processes, such as curatorship ventures, conferences and special cooperation activities with international artists.

About The Liquid Desert Projectpresence

Our collective subconscious sphere as a society functions as an invisible storage of life materi als which have been repressed, denied and exiled in the course of our personal and collective historical journey, while frequently surfacing as enigmatic and bothersome events secretly run ning reality. These life materials have been pro cessed and translated into an active component of mute works of art which re-activate them in the form of physical works displayed in real ven ues as disturbing and complex sculptural instal lations providing a non-verbal but sensual and physical experience.

The Liquid Desert Project is a virtual and meta physical site that consists of 49 virtual exhibition spaces spread across three underground levels.

The Liquid Desert Project deals with the emer gence and reflection of our hidden collective subconscious in the reality of our visible, physi cal existence. In its essence, The site acts as an allegory to a three-dimensional sculptural diagram of the psyche.

Thus, the Liquid Desert site offers a new and different mode of contemporary and advanced thinking in the form of a lively conversation with our world of shadows as a society and culture. This parallel shadow world is represented virtu

The actual works of art can be seen by the pub lic at any public venue where they are being pre sented, and from there they maintain an active “conversation/resonance” with the metaphysi cal site throughout the exhibition.

The virtual rooms of the desert site host the re flections of actual leading art works from the fields of drawing, sculpture, sound and video –which are simultaneously exhibited in an encod ed and partial matter in the visible public sphere. This creates a unique correspondence between a physical and visible field and its hidden under ground and metaphysical counterpart.

ally and in essence functions as a metaphysical zone in the underground site in the Negev.

The project is a distilled and profound new step for the artist, who has been mapping the subconscious space – personal and collective –for years, using drawing, sculpture and sound, which act as fragments of a muted and necessary witnessing in that space.

Action Axis No. 1a / Solo Exhibitions

Corresponding Rooms: First Room|conceptual Field (Desert): This room functions as a comprehensive meta-story of the collective subconscious warehouse located in the Liquid Desert site. It takes place in Ma’ale Avraham, which serves as the physical landmark of the site in the Negev Desert. The conceptual site produces an active resonant field through the sound and video works for the whole duration of the exhibition, in which the project episodes are displayed in various phys ical spaces around the world.

Second Room|Physical Field (Museum\Gallery space): Every exhibition space that wishes to host the Liquid Desert project or its chapters, in fact, presents actual physical works, which are accompanied by unique video and sound works. These works trigger an active conver sation between the physical display in the museum on the one hand, and the underground, virtual and metaphysical display rooms in the desert site on the other. In the exhibition spac es, an active conversation is created between a real object in the world and its subconscious space. It is the formulation of an active encounter between the visible space above and the invisible space below.

The realization of solo exhibitions relating to the Liquid Desert project includes two operating principles: The first principle refers to the concept of the corresponding room and the second principle to the tearing and detachment of walls from the metaphysical site in the Negev Desert.

Detaching walls from a virtual site and their physical realization in the display space: A museum that chooses to display the contents of the project is welcomed to detach walls from the site itself and implement them into a physical construction in the museum space. These walls will carry within themself sound works recorded at the Negev site and will act as an encoded wall on which the art chapters themselves will be displayed.

3. The Index / Plan of The Liquid

LiquidArchitecturalDesertSite

Wall Mobile walls from the site’s architecture are uncovered and shown in different exhibitions around the world. The wall is a fragment of a complex, multipart index that manifests one axis of the site’s subconscious archeology as a real physical space of artworks. It corresponds to a parallel, unseen, unresolved space that is in conflict with its shadow and with its very essence. The wall proposes a poetic move and is imprinted with muted imagery, such as drawings and photographs.

The site’s interior spaces that contain and host raw information. For years, Sasportas’ work has dealt with the different ways the collective and individual subconscious space, without the individual’s control, invades the space of lived, real action and discourse. The invasion emerges as an unexpected and trou bling event that cannot be pushed away to the marginal subconscious space. The rooms present capsules of rejected and suppressed information that has been frozen in time and through the manual act of drawing, objective witnessing is reactivated.

Structure

The Index / Architectural Plan of the Liquid Desert Site

Floor

This subconscious bunker has three underground levels that don’t see daylight. Every floor has its own role and it corresponds with the floor above it. The different rooms are engaged in an active and meaningful conver sation with the rooms directly above them. Floor -3: The Inventory Code, rooms 37-49, is concerned with the inventory of subjects for different topics that Sasportas is leading with artists, philosophers, curators, authors and film directors. Floor -2: The Shadow of Object, rooms 19-36, is concerned with the dark rooms. Floor -1: The Illuminated Objects, rooms 1-18, is concerned with changing cu ration processes and with the visual expres sion of various installation possibilities, later exhibited in museums and galleries around the world. Floor 0: Ground level, The Specific location in Abraham Path in the Negev Des ert, Israel.

The principle behind the site’s architectur al complex is of the necessary motion of all the site’s rooms and walls. Philosophically, this mobilization principle aims to uncover and float information that has been denied, suppressed and stored outside the system. On the one hand, the walls of all 49 rooms of the site constitute the spaces of their corre sponding subterranean rooms; on the other, by their very essence, these walls can be dis connected, torn, demolished, and subjected to any operation that would expose them to the full daylight of the surface – an encod ed fragment with the enduring potential to make the incomplete narrative whole.

Room

Building Sasportas’ work is characterized by site-spe cific sculptural installations, composed of sculptures, drawings, video and sound re cordings that demand the viewer’s total and intense sensory immersion. The installations, after years-long processes of adaptation and correspondence with the spaces in Europe where they were exhibited, now activate a new reading process of the architectural structure itself and of its wider cultural con text. Sasportas’ sculpture arrays deal with the unsettling correspondence between unspo ken, unseen subconscious life materials, and in the ways in which these layers of informa tion activate and establish the psyche’s visi ble surface. These processes have made Sas portas’ work into a tool for investigating the mechanism of the human psyche and how it leads, dictates and shapes the experience of life and the quality of being. Thanks to this investigation, Sasportas has been widely rec ognized in Europe as an artist who tackles urgent political matters in the same way that a poet, reacting to events as they occur, still notes the very mechanism of the psyche that enables the experience and participation in reality, as well as the mechanism that disen gages, forgets, rejects, remembers or denies it.

Screen

Black Box

The work represents a multilayered, arrest ed human psychic mechanism, where hidden rooms contain remnants of permanently de ferred emotional information, unabsorbed and unresolved because of the magnitude and energetic density of the events that have become frozen in time.

The walls built in the different exhibitions act as a blind spot, likened to a screen or a shad ow. In Sasportas’ sculptural installations and in her new work in particular, the wall emerg es as the marker of a hidden limit or border. This lmit divides the economy of the site’s ob jects between a conscious, illuminated and visible space and a liminal and dark subcon scious space, waiting as a silent, obstructed witness that can’t take action. The walls are presented on one plane with the wall in the space of the museum, which demonstrates the hidden space’s invasion and movement into a visible space.

Through the mechanism of her work, Saspor tas teases out fragments of the hidden layers of psychic archeology: dormant areas in the system of the individual subject or of a whole collective. Though they had participated ac tively and fully on life’s stage, these fragments were put asleep, suppressed and frozen in time on another level due to their density. Sasportas’ work suggests an encounter and dialogue with a part of the psyche that had been disconnected and therefore estranged. In this sense, the work seeks to express the moment of encounter or reception of the estranged and disconnected within us.

Time

The re-encounter with these fragments cre ates bewilderment, silence, muteness and a full presence of an act of witnessing fac ing the artwork’s active and muted imagery. The imagery is activated as an agent, a silent emissary, through the creation and manifes tation of absent areas, areas that have de parted time and space and are re-entering matter. The concept of impregnating matter with time outside of time, or the melding and fusing of the structure, is foundational to the resurfacing of darkened, dense and trans formed life material and to their integration, both individually and collectively.

In Sasportas’ works, the act of witnessing communicates materials of tension, con tradiction, conflict and crisis: materials that charge the system energetically but cannot be verbally expressed. Using silent imagery, the artist explores the invasion and inunda tion of the surface by the suppressed subcon scious material. At its core, the Liquid Desert seeks to express this unique space, which exists outside of language and time.

The exhibition intends to raise a question and refer to the subconscious field of the visible, heavenly and terrestrial realms, past and lost or fantasized and nev er-existed places and various landscapes. Sasportas’s installation is based on a dialogue between two key walls from the Liquid Desert project, in the form of sculpture, photography, drawings and sound works. It will comprise two originally hidden walls from the distant underground space that have metaphorically been detached, salvaged and exposed in the museum space for the means of surfacing the active poetic and timeless information which corresponds with life in the nat ural and visible scene.

The first wall is taken from the northeastern side of the Liquid Desert site, Room No. 10. It comprises a long library containing active and hidden coded information named: Hadvarim. It bears the photograph of an owl, with two round wood works in the back, bearing etchings of precise sound stripes of authentic life information recordings. The second wall is located in the southwestern side in Room No. 10. It holds the Witness drawing series, the Rooms drawings, photographs of the for ests – the Hashavat Aveda works, the Cad-Ot works and the Kelim prints are hung at the back. no. Liquid Desert project

At the center of the installation stands a black wall, detached from room no. 16 of the Liquid Desert site. The installation, which functions as an architectural branch of the actual desert site, was specifically adapted to the museum space and its architectural style. It maintains a historical correspondence with the particular character of the city of Wilhelmshaven and the specific point in history when the museum was erected. The city carries in its urban space a series of significant bunkers such as: Bunker

Their actual historical age entails the existence of storage, waiting and defense rooms, while their present existence comprises an empty and deserted void of impacted information, metaphorically frozen in time. As such, they maintain a timeless vigil in their urban surroundings.

As part of this discourse, the six known sculpture cells of Absalon will meet six of her own key sculptures, from the 1990’s, that essentially deal with the subcon scious of the object and the existence of a parallel room in the space that exists below the visible space above. This meeting takes place in room no. 28 which car ries the subject code: cell, room, place.

In addition, a video work filmed in room no. 28 of the virtual desert site, presents Both Sasportas’s and Absalon’s sculptures, which are scanned as objects and ap pear in the room as weightless metaphysical shadows. The lack of weight and transparency of the material allows for an unexpected sculptural encounter that creates a new space inside the subconscious room/cell in the Negev desert. This move will be exhibited in its broad and complete format at the Ashdod Museum as part of the exhibition.

The conversation mechanism of the Liquid Desert project produces fascinating conversations with artists that Sasportas has chosen to focus on, while the first action of this kind is a conversation with the artist Absalon, originally from the city of Ashdod, where Sasportas grew up herself.

Formal borrowings from objects and collages of the avant-gardes of the early 20th century, such as the Futu rists or Constructivists, are hard to overlook here, as they are in the rest of Katja Strunz nut‘s work. The clear, strictly reduced vocabulary of basic geometric forms in combination with monochrome surfaces speaks for itself. Yet despite the superficial parallels, Strunz‘s adaptations have no eclectic character whatsoever. Her clear reference to the old produces something new, chrackteristic and only her own. She does not use the square, not the perfectly circled circle, she avoids the security and constancy of the closed form. Through fragmentariness, folds, bends and breaks, it negates any forward-looking utopia, which, quite in contrast, was aspired to by its formal predecessors at the beginning of the 20th century. The temporal dimension plays a central role in the work of Katja Strunz. If, on the one hand, the fragmentary character of her works refers to a past whole, the foldings themselves presuppose previous processes and moments of folding. The formalaesthetic caesura in space is joined by ruptures in the course of time.

Katja Strunz` 2010 work Einfall - a metal sculpture nearly 6 meters high - literally bores into the lawn of the sculpture garden, literally falls into it and stands out from its surroundings due to its material and form. Strunz` work forms a caesura in space, a splinter in the landscape. The ambivalent title Einfall refers not only to the core and starting point of every artistic process - the idea, the inspiration. It can also be read as a synonym for assault and the crossing of borders, thus harboring an inkling of violence - possibly referring here to the consistency with which the object conquers space and takes possession of it both materially and aesthetically. Einfall is part of a group of works that represents an artistic penetration of Martin Heidegger‘s philosophical conception of the world as a „Geviert,“ or rather its deconstruction and fragmentation. This circumstance gives the artist‘s work a strong content dimension.

(Henry Lacante, 2019, in Konkrete Gegenwart, Hg. Haus Konstruktiv, Zürich)

Like an echo, a condition from the past is actualized in the present. Katja sees unfinished processes from the past as traumas, as a loss of the present. This is where her terminology emerges: Space Fold, Aftertime, Zeittraum, Space Lips.

„Shards, splinters of a past, remnants that retain the ability to pierce the present and to recall a past whole“.

The collage „Untitled“ from 1997 is at the beginning of her artistic practice. It is simply a random jumble of paper scraps and snippets. However, the similarity of this random arrangement to a historical constructi vist collage seemed unusual to her and could not be a coincidence. Constructivism seemed to her to be a welcome specter, which she pursued in her work from then on.

„It‘s about the still-present of the past“ Katja Strunz tells me in a conversation. She quotes Aleida Assmann and Heinrich Böll: „The restlessness that emanates from the past is surprisingly present“. In her works, she tries to give this restlessness a face: „I grew up in a small town in South Germany. The architectural landscape seemed to be a potpourry of new and old ruins. There was a lack of relation, blind spots, disruptions - things felt disconnected. I started to make collages from used landscape books, cutting out the shadows. My point was, to show the spatial fractures, to suspend the spatial continuum, to break the arrow of time“.

Rückfall, 2017 Pulp Painting 180 x 134 cm

Code: The Dark Brain Active Conversation: no.9

Over the course of the past 20 years or so, Strunz has made 13 Zeittraum installations for specific exhibitions and spaces. The numbers in titles, from 1 through 13 suggest a chrono logy in moments and spaces of constellation. The individual fragments, however, find their place in new orders, upcycled from one installation to another. They represent the bygone as a material for the present, something referred to by the German historian Reinhart Koselleck as ‘sediments of time.’

( Dana Zaja, 2021, Zeittraum #13, Hg. Contemporary Fine Arts, Berlin)

The fall and the fold are Strunz’s means of organization—there is an order to chaos that often remains overlooked. As histories take shape, it is the present material that continues to resist. Are the folded-up triangles an homage to avant-garde constructivism or are they falling fragments of something that was once whole and can never be assembled again, suspended in the moment before the crash? They may be ruptures in the everyday, contracting the space of the present for future’s sake. In Strunz’s works, abstract concepts eventually emerge as tangible forms.

Zeittraum, 2002 letterpress print on paper 24 x 17,5 cm

It was Walter Benjamin who coined the term “Zeittraum” to refer to the immediate expe rience of the past through the dream. For a world in perpetual crisis, surviving one end after the other, Benjamin saw the dream-space was the only world common to us all. In Strunz’s works, this hazy philosophy is granted concrete formal language and made experiential—into a physical undeniability.

Crucial to her work, Sasportas has a continual interest in the exposure of subterranean spaces and of missing parts of the conscious that are suspended in time, as well as its direct effect on what is on the surface. The exhibition space [functioned] as a platform for a fertile dialogue between two parallel worlds that exist at the same time but are hidden from each other. The visual bridge that Sasportas builds generates movement of thoughts, shapes, and objects between the physical and the metaphysical dimension. This is a sculptural journey to the depth of both the collective and personal subconscious that is expressed by movement in time and space in (MiraJerusalem…"Lapidot,

“...The large solo exhibition by Yehudit Sasportas at the Israel museum is a sculptural installation, which was comprised of four videos, sculptures and drawings. The layout of the exhibition is parabolic to a multi channeled walk through the different lobes of the brain, a kind of glimpse at conciseness itself.

“...Night time photographs of the magnetic table/ model, taken from the Berlin studio ceiling in the course of seven years. The Magnetic Shaky Table is a simple still life scene that represents a collective subconscious which is constantly on the move. Sasportas's philosophical interest originates in the swamp located in north-west Germany, which she took various materials from and dried them in her studio, creating part of a conceptual still life which moved constantly, halted only due to an active magnetic field caused by inserted magnets. The film shows the dynamics of the components: magnetic stones, dried tree parts from the swamp with inserted magnets, electrified branches with wires wrapped around them and felt ropes that function as drawing lines. In Sasportas work the swamp embodies an unprocessed part of nature, partly rejected, which has not undergone cultural integration; on the other hand, it constitutes an entrance gate to the metaphysical dimension. The movement of these two spaces - the physical and the metaphysical - form one of the main topics of Sasportas's work. Stegmann, 2020)

structure of the room serves as a container for repressed/nonverbalised emotions, while the works that take place in it activate/transform an unspoken life material which exists in the collective subconscious outside of language and time. These works explore the invasion of the surface by suppressed subconscious material, and in doing so, delve into the unsettling correspondence between unspoken, unseen and subconscious life materials, and the ways in which these layers of information activate and establish the psyche's visible surface. They enable the act of witnessing by communicating materials of tension, contradiction, conflict and crisis: materials that charge the system energetically but cannot be verbally expressed.

The installation is an integral part of the Liquid Desert Project that the artist has been elaborating over the past 7 years with the aim of mapping individual and collective subconscious space. Conceived as a conceptual apparatus for investigating the mechanisms of the human psyche that enable one to participate in reality or to forget, reject, and deny it, the Liquid Desert project brings to the surface a negative subterranean site –a bunker virtually situated in the Negev Desert (in southern Israel), consisting in total of 3 underground levels and 49 rooms. Featuring the Room No. 10, the installation presented at Arter is derived from two black walls that function as dividers and thresholds, supports and Thesurfaces.architectural

No-Man's Land - The Time Dwellers

From the Exhibition text -

The film’s point of departure was my fascination with a swamp located in north-west Germany, where I took various materials and vegetation from the swamp itself and dried them in my studio in Berlin, creating part of a conceptual still life which moved constantly, halted only due to an active magnetic field caused by inserted magnets. I have been working in the swamp for the last 13 years. After working there for 8 years - recording the site in video and sound - I discovered that it hid in its depths a secret underground architecture: a bunker that was hidden for 70 years. Creating a sculptural model from the swamp’s plants was an important milestone in my artistic process. I had found a way to correspond with the swap’s physical location and the parallel collective subconscious area it represented, by using its vegetation and recording its movement.

Locus Solus, Arter museum, Istanbul, 2022

The installation I created includes The Magnetic Shaky Table film, which focuses on a simple stilllife scene that represents a collective subconscious that is constantly on the move. It is derived from night-time photographs of the magnetic table/ model, taken from the Berlin studio ceiling in the course of seven years.

(Yehudit Sasportas & Selen Ansen conversation, 2021)

The exhibition Locus Solus aims to rethink the relationships between the mineral, vegetal, animal and human lives and the ways in which nature and culture intertwine with each other.

It was created as a site-specific work especially for the Schlossgut Schwante grounds and its historical context. The Outdoor sculptures that compose the poetical Field Sentences, are to be set in six different areas across Germany and photographed from a bird’s-eye view after the unveiling of the first Field Sentence - an encoded minefield of hidden and folded information.

The exhibition dealt with the subject of the mechanical abstraction, which seemingly lacks principles such as sublimity, infinity, spirituality and mythicality. The different artworks included in the exhibition use mechanical means, but beneath the mantle of visibility there is an encrypted philosophical thinking, subconscious ness and hidden information, that are inherent to the creative process. Sasportas’s installation deals with the individual and collective subconscious and the exhibition exposed the first mobile wall from the Liquid Desert project - Wall no. 13, room no. 18, north-eastern side. The wall unveils a poetic process embedded with silent images such as drawings of the rooms, photographs of owls in their dark habitats and drawings of nocturnal birds that lead their physical lives in the space of the hidden site. The wall composition’s nucleus is a unique spatial expression, which exists past language and beyond time. The fragments presented on this Wall, represent the essence of deceleration or acceleration of life process es as a reaction to anomalous events, and the surfacing of life material into the open for both personal and collective examination.

The work is part of a series of six mine sentences: The first sentence of the proj ect, In Us Are the Polars, was placed in January 2019 at the bottom of a swamp in northeast Germany, where Sasportas has been working for over a decade. Lev Parum is the second phrase in the series of and it is the first presentation of the Liquid Desert project in Israel. The tracks of sound, which have been inserted into the mines, were recorded manually and follow an original track that the artist re corded for seven years in the south of Germany’s Black Forest. Sasportas currently operates in the Black Forest nine different recordings of series of trees, which refer to various historic landmarks.

Sasportas’s work for the exhibition, Lev Parum (Unraveled Heart), opens the pathway through which the visitors are invited to view the show, which is mostly invis ible to the eye. It is composed of six mines made of clay, each containing a hand made drawing of sound data rolled inside a metal box. They operate in a coded, mute and silent manner, as though awaiting a potential moment of activation. The mines were burned in an especially high temperature in order to allow them to sink to the bottom of the aquatic flowers pool at the Botanical Garden, and the viewer, who is only made aware of the work after the mines had already been submerged in the water, cannot fully detect them.

Abraham Path / The Frozen Eden Room no.42, Conversations Svalbard Global Seed Vault, Norway. Live Event Conversations Active underground I subconscious resonance field Liquid desert project I Svalbard Global Seed Vault, Norway Resonance field: Negev Desert, Israel - Svalbard Global Seed Vault, Norway. The field will be activated between 05-12/2024

A correspondence between Abraham’s Path and the Frozen Garden of Eden: The extrication of frozen time - created by indigestible past events - is one of the key principles of the Liquid Desert Project, and led to the choosing of Abraham’s path in the Negev Desert in the south of Israel as its physical location.

This spot is of historical and personal significance to the artist and is related to her nuclear family. According to tradition, this is the site of a historic dialogue between the human dimension in the form of Abraham and divine presence –as demonstrated by the change in Abraham’s name – from Avram to Avraham, introducing the Hebrew letter ה (H) which symbolizes in the simplest and deepest sense the acknowledgment of God’s presence in the manifest physical world. In this respect, the Liquid Desert project deals with the movement of structures and the lively dialogue between the overt dimension of our life and the hidden one –the one which contains important information essential for the actual movement. The essence of the connection between the Liquid Desert Project that is physically located in Abraham’s Path in the Negev Desert in Israel to the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, that can also be referred to as “The Frozen Garden of Eden” and is located in Northern Norway and in the northern hemisphere, is a metaphorical and symbolic bond.

LIQUID DESERT PROJECT

Svalbard Global Seed Vault, Norway Yehudit Sasportas, Liquid Desert project Yehudit Sasportas & Thomas Huebl, Pocket Project May 2024.

The manner in which the conference will be held: The conference itself will take place in two places simultaneously: the virtual space - one of the rooms of the Liquid Desert site - as well as an exhibition space at a museum in Norway. The Liquid Desert site consists of 49 virtual exhibition spaces designated for different activities in corresponding topics - among those is the hosting of international conferences on relevant and current issues, which take place in the virtual code rooms spread across the three underground levels of the site. The proposal for the current conference refers to room no. 42 that bears the code “The Frozen Eden”. It will host lectures, talks and interviews regarding this subject in a virtual space and will enable an international audience to connect, listen, engage and participate in the conference. The Negev desert is located approximately on the equator that divides the planet in two. As an artist, I see this connection as a correspondence between two time domains: the time of Abraham, the era of the beginning of history and the recep tion of the contents of humanity’s ethical code on the one hand, and a dialogue with the future time, with the end of history and the end of the world on the other, preparing for a scenario of collective trauma or apocalyptic disaster, in which case the seed vault would enable life’s rebirth. In this aspect, the correspondence is between the beginning of ancient human history, grounded in the past, and the time of the future, requiring a focus on the present times and to put aside the collective apathy to the world’s deterioration.
