Trust in Waters

A story about a fighter, a hunter, one self amongst different characters who holds a discipline within his movement and creations.
A struggle of survival and terror inside his mind and body when he tries to catch his true natural rhythm traveling in the limited moments of reality and unclouded stance.
In a challenging love story that upholds his own fight for a long continues breath.    

This is a document of the absolute dance.

Jaffa Museum, 2019

A collaborative project between Dor Even Chen and Avi Sabah at ‘Atar’, Jaffa Museum

‘Informants’ presents the notion of being trapped within the violent moment with no option of escape, and raises questions regarding regions of war or conflict; areas in which one must adapt in order to survive.
An ‘Informant’ is an individual who assists a foreign power ruling their country. Even in situations not involving an occupying regime, yet information or assistance is provided to an “enemy”, informants are considered traitors by their people. Thus the word “informant” is considered a derogatory term, and consists of both apparent and hidden violence


مشروع فني مشترك للفنانين دور إيڤن حن وآڤي صبح بصالة "أتار"، متحف يافا
المعرض "عملاء" عبارة عن تركيب متعدد الوسائط مشترك ومتعلق بمكان العرض من ابداع الفنانين دور إيڤن حن وآڤي صبح.  يتألف التركيب من تماثيل ورسومات وعدة عروض ڤيديو.
في فضاء "أتار" يتم عرض عدة حالات تتعامل مع حوادث ومناطق عنيفة (zone)، مؤامرات، عدم السيطرة على الجسم وأوضاع الاستحقاق ما بعد وقوع حادثة أو حدث ما. يحاكي الفضاء مشهد جريمة أو كارثة، ويتيح للمشاهد التنقل بين محاور الأحداث.

يقوم المعرض "عملاء" بتجسيد حالة من الوقوع بفخ في لحظة عنيفة لا هروب منها، يتساءل عن ساحات حرب وصراع، مناطق فيها يلزم الشخصية على التكيّف من أجل النجاة.

"عملاء" هي جمع "عميل"- الشخص الذي يقوم بالتعاون مع سلطة أجنبية التي تحكم/تحتل أرضه. يُحسب العملاء على أنهم خونة لوطنهم. حتى في الحالات التي لا تكون فيها قوة أجنبية محتلة، يقوم العميل بتقديم المساعدات والمعلومات إلى "العدو". المصطلح "عميل" يعبر عن إهانة ومسبّة ويحتوي بداخله عنفًا ظاهراً ومخفياً.

Thermal Recorder
Fire drawing on fax thermal paper, 21x240 cm, 2015

This work is stained by fire, creating black spots that appear repetitively, creating a cryptic writing, a simulated calligraphy or a cave painting, an unravelled mural. This riddle marked by fire is a note about past and future, a transmission of language. The outdated fax machine, designed to transmit information between two edges, becomes an error message, that opens a secret door burned by the heat. The black color material transgresses along the wall from the ceiling to the floor space, while the format of the thermal paper corresponds with rows and panels of religious scriptures, spiritual halls and lost languages. The work generates  randomness against the structure ­ hanging from the ceiling, and falling down, it's character is built from the destruction, rather than the addition of material. thus, offering alternative characterization of transmissions.
