In Another Green: Leor Grady and Joseph Dadoune

May 8-June 30, 2022

Kolkata Centre for Creativity in association with Embassy of Israel in India and Alliance Française de Delhi presents In Another Green with works by Leor Grady and Joseph Dadoune, curated by Achia Anzi.

In Another Green explores the dynamics of coloniality in Israel through the theme of nature. It borrows its title from ‘Preliminary Background Remarks’, a poem by the Algeria-born Israeli poet Erez Biton that reflects on the disintegration of Eastern Jewish traditions in Israel and the poet’s conflicted cultural position. The artworks on display engage with the binary opposition of culture and nature that shapes the colonial matrix of power, and with the perception that para-modern societies are closer to nature. This conception has framed the interaction between Western and Eastern Jews in Israel/Palestine since the 19th century.
