Refrigerator and microwave

(2018)

An interactive installation in which the refrigerator and microwave of the MFA studios were moved down to the vitrine gallery facing the street. The staff and artists had to go two floors down in order to take their food from the fridge and warm it in the microwave, this while being exposed to the passersby. The installation framed the everyday lunch break, the 3 minutes of wait and expectation for the food to heat in full view of the residents of the hardworking, poor neighborhood in which the studios and gallery are located. At the opening night people were invited to come inside and eat whatever they wanted.

The work took place at the Hazit Gallery in Tel Aviv.
