Video screening design for a dance piece by Ranana Raz
‘WART’ is the meeting point between the two edges of the human consciousness: war and creation.
It is the creation process of an alternative reality, consisting of images and elements identified with war, creating a new syntax for them, decontextualizing them and placing them in a new world, fantastic and good. The world created wishes to extricate reality from itself, and convert the contemporary to the eternal, the automatic to the unpredictable and turn ugliness into beauty.
Everything taking place in ‘WART’ resonates as an echo to reality, yet is not obliged by its codes. In uninhibited sequences, wild and imagined, in the shadow of the horror taking place outside, a new plot is being weaved.
