ESTHER NAOR – Between me and Myself
The work depicts a woman (myself) moving as in a dance or ceremony, on a cracked-looking background. The figure is connected to the ground, limited to a certain space, framed/captivated by the camera. She aims to the borders, but cannot cross them.

Being made by an Israeli, this work may be interpreted as political, which is ok, but it is first and foremost a personal work, as hinted in the title, continuing my queries of issues such as culture, identity, and the woman’s condition from my personal perspective. The background is a cooked rice surface which has dried and cracked. The work depicts a woman (myself) moving as in a dance or ceremony, on a cracked-looking background.
