Tal Alperstein and Yulia Turban | Monumentalise

 

“Monumentalise” is an ongoing project which began in 2015, in which Alperstein and Turban investigate the notion of commemoration through the relations between the human body and monuments. Thus, in the renewed construction of monumental shapes through living bodies, a choreography for a transient act of commemoration takes form.

The video documentation presented in the exhibition depicts a new series of versions of Israeli monuments in Tel-Aviv and Berlin. The project is accompanied by do-it-yourself instructional sketches by Dan Alon.
