Shimon Attie: MetroPAL.IS.
Shimon Attie: MetroPAL.IS. |
Shimon AttieÕs MetroPAL.IS., an immersive, multiple-channel video installation, dramatically tackles the complex and intensely problematic Middle East conflict with characters cast from the Palestinian and Israeli communities in New York City. Each of the performers reads from a document created by Attie that combines sections of the Israeli Declaration of Independence (1948) and the Palestinian Declaration of Independence (1988), revealing a surprisingly significant overlap between the two original texts.
The complex editing and post-production work integral to creating this symphony of voices and the interaction among the eight monitors was completed during AttieÕs residency in the Wexner CenterÕs Film/Video Studio Program in 2010.
