The exhibition showcases Inferno and Tashlikh, two video installations by the Israeli artist Yael Bartana. Her installations, photographs and films explore questions of identity, nationality and memory. Inferno depicts the construction of the Third Temple of Solomon, a replica of the First Temple in Jerusalem, in São Paulo, Brazil. Using fact and fiction, it examines why the first temple was destroyed. Tashlikh explores what happens when perpetrators and survivors of genocides or ethnic persecutions symbolically rid themselves of the objects that have survived these traumatic events.
