The First House is a video work based on the testimony of an officer in the IDF telling how he evicted three Palestinian women from their home. While a woman narrates his story, the camera invades a series of private homes in Tel Aviv on a typical evening, without the residents even knowing about its presence. The resulting emotion is a dissonance of guilt feelings of trampling on people’s privacy, juxtaposed against the soldier’s own feelings in evicting people from their homes. Catalogue no. 1553 File:S Nurit Sharet and Tami Gross’ work, The First Home, recounts the testimony of an officer in the Israeli army who deports three Palestinian women as told in the voice of one of the filmmakers. The imagery shown is a series of glimpses into Tel Aviv apartments during the routine hours of the evening. The immoral actions in the work, the deportation of the Palestinian women, the two artists filming the inhabitants of these apartments without their consent, and the appropriation of the narrator’s voice, all create a poetic of immorality, one that raises questions about the banality of evil.
