Urinary State, Avner Bar Hama, Installation

portrait of Herzl and the Magen David Urinary State

This detail from an artwork that includes a portrait of Herzl and the Magen David (not seen here)  is published here courtesy of the artist, and all rights are reserved to him.

According to art explorer David Sperber (translation by zeevveez):

In Avner Bar Hama’s Installation Urinary State a modern urinary is placed under the Duchamp urinary photograph. "We are living in a changing world: reality is changing as well as identity; everything changes and smells bad. What we see here is a protest against the culture of "what will the neighbors say? ". In spite of this, on the portrait of Herzl appears his saying "our hope have never been lost”.
