The piece makes use of the ‘public establishment’ aesthetics of the center, objects taken from the Israeli public space, and the gesture of hospitality, for an examination of the manner in which the body is situated in a shared space - an everyday activity, that nonetheless harbors a certain danger and risk. Both parties: the host and the guest, the inviter and the invited - risk an element of their privacy, creating together a precarious and fleeting event at the very edge between the private and the public.
