The Artwork

These are some elements of the installation. The centerpiece of the installation is the dinner table. Two parts of the canvas tablecloth were created simultaneously in the USA and Israel – they were stitched up right at the gallery by Shirley Siegal and Hadieh Afshani, when the project was installed for the first time. It is a symbolic collaboration between the representatives of two historically conflicting countries in the Middle East: Israel and Iran.
