This video excerpt is courtesy of the artist. The original video duration is 22 minutes and 5 seconds.

Elham Rokni employs video installation and drawing to investigate memory and emotion through the lens of extreme daily situations and her personal history as an immigrant. Her work explores an intricate, multifaceted reality that challenges existing physical and political boundaries, and in the process, powerful psychic conditions both conscious and unconscious are revealed. Born in Iran in 1980, lives and works in Tel-Aviv. She is a graduate of Bezalel Academy’s BFA (2007) and MFA (2010) programs and is a professor at the Bezalel Academy art department.
