Osama Zatar - performative installation
Performative interpretation of the biblical phrase from Isaiah 2,4, while reflecting on social and political categorization in white-western society.
The performance means to raise the question: what do you feel when you see a Muslim man holding a gun, playing around like a child, only to realize he is trying to show you another way to use that gun? Not to kill but to build. The “building gun” will also be used as part of an interactive performance, where people from the public are invited to use it and thus make them realize what “feeling” holding a gun provokes and is it possible to change that?
