solo exhibition @ the artist's house, tel aviv, 2005

An exhibition dealing with biographical and national father-figures: my father and my father's uncle - the founder of the state of Israel, Theodor Herzl.
A large-scale video screening showing my father, an ex-scientist of NASA and a devoted utopian, demonstrating a health exercise he has invented. For a better and healthier world. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

 

On a smaller, free-standing screen a contemporary Herzl look-alike preeches his vision of a world riding on bicycles alone.
