Still Waters

by Benji Boyadgian, Palestine

A walk along the hypothetical route of an ancient aqueduct that fell out of use about 14 centuries ago. From south Bethlehem to the old city of Jerusalem, two obsolete pools mark the beginning and the end of this traverse that flows through a fragmented agglomeration. For a few centuries this water infrastructure supplied the course of this insatiable city, a city growing off its ancient water systems, off its ground, a fiction that is its own reflection. Screened in the framework of the group show AQUA in Geneva, Sao Paulo and Isola di Pescatori, Lake Maggiore, 2017 -2018.
