The Kissing Wall, 04:44min, 2012

The Kissing Wall body of work depics the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem and its traditional Jewish Ritual. Returning to my homeland, Israel, where I visited the most renowned and sacred site in Jerusalem, the Western Wall and performed the Wailing Wall ritual; focusing on the aspect of kissing the wall; examining the intersection between the spiritual, erotic and object. 

Following the video, upon my return to America, I created my own private wall in my studio made entirely of kissing with lipstick

At the Wailing Wall, I also made molds of the stones according to my hand size and made replicas from these molds in my USA studio, creating souvenirs of a souvenir.
