The work ’Tuning’ features a young woman dressed in a suit saluting while in the background, the music of a national anthem is playing. The screened image is reflected twice and the young, saluting woman salutes to herself as a confirmation or self-salute or she is saluting us who are taking part in the rituals and ceremonial games. Bartana’s video and sound works address socialization and nationalization ceremonies as well as social symbols and rituals. She deals with variables existing within the social mold whereby the characters filmed in her works appear to be programmed within a monotonous set of actions which empties the ceremony/ritual of its cultural and social context. 

Also found on the compilation, ”The Zionist Ventriloquist” curated by Roee Rozen. The Zionist Ventriloquist brings together Israeli video works based on pop, rock and other musical tunes. All of the featured works employ practices of doubled-voices, such as drag, karaoke, puppet mastering, mash-up and dubbing. These are performances that relish the pleasures of singing and dancing, even as they bind them with parody and deception, self-contradiction and simulation. This collection, then, is both a compilation of artworks, a lopsided sequence of music clips, and an ongoing reflection on the voice as a hybrid.
