Greetings from Jerusalem Avenue I

Greetings from Jerusalem Avenue I , 2013, Edition of 29

40 x 100 cm, c-print

Conceived as ‘a social experiment\', an imitation of a 15 metre-high palm tree was installed in the middle of a busy roundabout at the junction of Aleje Jerozolimskie (Jerusalem Avenue) and Nowy Świat in Warsaw. The project originated from the artist\'s visit to Israel, during the outburst of the second Intifada. It made her realize the void left by the absence of the Jewish community in Poland and the significance of the history and etymology of Aleje Jerozolimskie to Warsaw identity. By adding an almost surreally alien element, a palm tree common in the Middle East, in the spot that previously served as a location for a Christmas tree, the artist highlighted and challenged the invisibility of the street’s name.
