The Dead Sea in Three Parts, 2013
The 1947 United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine divided, among other things, the Dead Sea into three parts. According to the plan the East side went to Jordan, the South-West side to Israel and the North-West side to Palestine. The Dead Sea In Three Parts looks at the formal consequences of this political act by taking the volume of this body of water and cutting it literally according to these demarcation lines.
The result is a precariously balanced three part topographical sculpture where the Jordanian side is still held upright - as the deepest point of the Dead Sea lies in Jordan - while the two other sides are sheared away and collapse to the floor.
The sculpture is made with mud from the Dead Sea, a precarious material that holds within its density a high level of salt and mineral oils which will alter the surface of the piece over time.
