Most museum-goers relate to the vast hallways connecting the different galleries as a means to an end, a transitional space that bridges the gap between exhibitions. But instead of casually sauntering through these areas, May Zarhy wants to stay in them.
“We are living in such a goal-oriented society, that the path doesn’t have any value,” she says. “The idea was to linger in a space between spaces. I want to suggest and realize the concept of making an island. It is not this or that but something in between.”
A choreographer and performer, Zarhy will premiere a new work this weekend at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art as part of the annual Diver Festival.
