Black Swan lifeboat
The project was made with Avihai Mizrahi
project “Black Swan lifeboat” is part of
"State of extremes" - the 10th anniversary exhibition of Design Museum Holon.
Every summer hundreds of inflatable animals descend to the Mediterranean shores, people lose their favorite inflatables, swept away by winds, currents - never to be seen again. At the same time, rubber boats try to cross the sea from south to north as their passengers flee from their collapsing lands.
An inflatable black swan represents this unique equation and contradiction. A strange combination between a refugee boat and an inflatable animal raises the question of whether we are truly aware of the dramatic immigration crisis, or is it the black animal we prefer to ignore.
The exhibition runs through May 09, 2020
