Overview

 

This interactive piece invited audiences to learn about the process of using salt to preserve fish, which played a major role in ancient Israel's culinary tradition and trade. For the performance, 15 tons of salt were brought to Jerusalem. Fish that were pressed in salt were extracted from salty walls and brought back to life using restoration facilities.
The installation highlighted questions about the mechanisms individuals and communities (and specifically the Jewish community) use to uphold the past. In addition, we explored questions regarding what individuals choose to conserve, and who makes those choices. 5000 visitors a day engaged in Jerusalem’s history through this exciting sensory experience.
