BUILT NOT BUILT / 2017
The starting point in this project is a video taken by my brother during his reserve duty. The video serves as evidence for the unrecognized settlements built by the army in order to train its soldiers for activities in built-up areas.
These ghost towns function as a nameless map, as a home without its inhabitants, a symbol of a reality that exists only in the consciousness of its workers. Their coordinates point nowhere and are not on the map.
The work is made of pottery vessels, whose shape marks parts of houses, a reference to structures whose purpose is not defined. Are they structure? Through them arises the question of the function that corresponds with the role of the imaginary houses.
