Baboushka (2013) - Video 4'03''
Baboushka is a documentary video work made in 2013, before my moving from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Through some kind of emptyness, the thoughts are told with images that remain almost static with a voiceover, The song ( 2'38'') is poem of Alexander Pushkin,
In the torture of hopeless melancholy,
In the bustle of the world's noisy hours,
That voice rang out so tenderly,
I dreamed of that lovely face of yours.
Then to my soul an awakening came,
And there again your face appeared,
Like a vision, fleeting, momentary,
Like a spirit of the purest beauty.
Voiceover subtitiles coming soon.
