Arctica / Maayan Liebman-Sharon & Yaara Nirel with Maya Resheff
A woman’s figure drifts on an iceberg, floating in the middle of the ocean.
She moves around this new, cold and alienated space, isolated and cut off from any human contact.
The ever-changing surface around her influences her very being, her humaneness and her elusive presence.
Constantly in motion, she continues to seek other representations of her existence as she drifts towards an unknown destination.
