Black on Black


Beit Hasid

Jerusalem Biannual


"Black on Black" is a collaborative performance art by the artists Marcelle Tehila Bitton and Aniam Deri.


The performance is dealing with the connections- political, religious and gender identity of the artists, taking a critical perspective.

The mysterious henna ceremony is run by the female "Admor" (Rabbi) who feed  the viewers with pomegranates and teaches them to bless, as at her foot taking place the "palm deer" which blackening the palm branches and so her own hands.

The performance was part of the Jerusalem Biannual 2017.
