In this work of performance art, performers in a late -ninteeth- century- style sit around a table and squeeze the juice out of a hundreds of oranges. The juice pours out under the table onto the naked body of the artist until he is completely soaked. The work relates ti historical events which associated with the site it was performed in- the Russian court in the middle of Jerusalem. In 1964 the state of Israel purchased most of the land and structures of the Russian compound from the red Russian church in what became known as the orange deal, whereby the Soviet-Union recived imports of Israeli citrus fruit. In this work I explore the reaction of the human body to the materials I employ and also to the componnents and history of the envirnoment in which I preform. This is a personal journey that is both physical and emotional.
