etching – Series (2013)

 

 

Digital etching of photographed from “Canada Park” at Israel 67′ border of remnants of Palestinian villages that were destroyed and covered by the park’s plantation.

The Canada Park region has become completely Israeli in at least two ways: 1) It was “annexed” to Israel and “naturalized.”  No signage indicates it’s located beyond the Green Line, there’s almost no trace of the Palestinian villages Israel captured and demolished during the 1967 war and an attractive KKL forest has been planted serving thousands of visitors annually.  2) Israel never agreed in negotiations with Palestinians to relinquish the area; the Zionist leadership expects it to remain part of Israel.[1]
