Video – title:
SOAPOPERA, 2015, 10:47
The civilization of olive tree and laurel leaf are stitched together by a thin red thread that unites the East and the West, along the routes of trade, conquests and migrations.
Five women are making soap, according to Aleppo tradiztion, while other symbolical actions take place.
The videoperformance debuted the 13th of november 2015, at 20 pm, in a famous hair-dresser in Rome. The location creates a contextual shock: beauty and war, east and west, long red hair and a black hijab. We women did the ritual together, unaware that elsewhere, at the same time, horrible crimes were consumed in the name of god.
