OVERVIEW



Dina Shenav at No Man's Land

In its modern signification, No Man’s Land is a zone separating between the armies of enemy countries during and after war; an area that conceals more than it reveals – an area without known ownership, which denies a foothold for governing authority, a territory without actual sovereignty or self-control.

The works of the nine artists participating in the exhibition, engage contradictory, undefined situations, suspended between polar opposites: the borderline between art and reality, and the distinctions between artistic categories and techniques; the encounter of collective historical memory with private memory; areas of transition in daily life in which the confidence we draw from the close and the familiar is undermined; situations in which social and political mechanisms of power encourage recklessness and lack of responsibility. They all shed light on this area of transition and lead to a third state – a vulnerable twilight zone; a cognitive state that begins with a dream or fantasy and ends with self-aware criticism.
