Silent Gallop


Site specific installation: Sculptures of : A horse, A flag made of horses hair, and A print of a map, studies on the terrain by Conrad Schick.

In this installation a horse gallops against the backdrop of Jerusalem's Old City walls, on the cusp of the desert, in what has been his natural habitat for thousands of years. The sound of his stomping hooves echoes a time before car emissions. A sound that besides being a symbol of authority, government and war, also alludes to a romantic image of independence and freedom of thought. The horse’s legs were crafted in the Louvre in 17th Century Paris, as part of Neoclassical studies in old Greek and Roman sculptures of arabian horses.
