The project Pippi Longstocking (2006-8) was produced in collaboration with Tanja Schlander (a Danish sound and performance artist). It transformed a well-known classic children’s hero into a contemporary character in order to examine the crisis of separation between cultural entities. The Swedish writer Astrid Lindgren wrote this fairytale in 1944 to inspire her daughter to understand radicalism and defy the conventions of normal feminine behavior. Using Pippi’s own notion that she is “The strongest girl in the world” and anti-authoritarian, Yefman documented Schlander’s attempts as Pippi to move the huge concrete wall that separates Israel from the West Bank. For Yefman Pippi represents the ultimate female hero- dreaming for positive change and suggesting of transformations that can promote peace and unity. Using the fantasy of fiction to confront the real, Yefman wants to promote the idea that change is always in a constant dialogue with historical precedents and physical boundaries, but that in essence it is always the will of the individual that contributes to a positive reformation of any political conflict.
