This mixed media installation, consisting of a three channel video and a series of relics, unfolds a political and publicly performed love story of the one year relationship we had with Oliver from Lebanon. This work demonstrates the strong implications of an artistic decision with the attempt to circumvent, on a personal level, the segregation of Israelis from Arabs.
