Land scape
Thanks a lot for your time and for sharing your thoughts , Tali . Finally , would you like to tell our readers something about your future projects ? How do you see your work evolving ?
My next work will explore the concept of alienation or foreignness as a means of “ fleeing ” a reality that is difficult to cope with . I began working on this while contemplating what it means to be a stranger in a strange land that one was not born in . For me , a Jew born in Israel , this is an especially complex issue . So I am thinking about my connection to Israel as well as the connection that Jews in the Diaspora have to Israel . Zionism introduced the concept of the new Jew over a century ago . Does the new Jew of today reside in the Diaspora while enjoying the support of a Jewish state ? I also am processing the feeling of being in another country . It is interesting to create in a different place . Doing so connects me to artists who created in a place that was not theirs , like Milan Kundera , who wrote in France . So I am not only thinking about Israel , but also about the universal connection of a person to a land .
