“West and East” (2007-2010)

Performance -film by sala-manca group - a translation to Goldin and Abramson's film East and West 
 
This live performance and video by Argentinian-born, Jerusalem-based artists the Sala-Manca Group is an homage to Sidney Goldin and Ivan Abramson’s East and West and a study in cultural and linguistic translation. It tells the story of Yaakov, an Orthodox Jewish graffiti writer who travels to Vienna. Suspected of subversive activities, he is pursued by Moly, an agent of the Israeli intelligence service, who disguises herself as a young Orthodox man. The relationship that develops between then force them to rethink their duties to their religion and to the state. West and East translates the comic subversiveness of Goldin and Abramson’s film to the contemporary moment. Sala-Manca’s work—performance pieces, installations, and print publications—“investigates issues of art and communication generally, such as the interrelation of art and memory, the role of the artist in the community, the interrelation of low-tech and high-tech aesthetics, and the poetics of translation—not only from one language to another, but also across cultures and media” (Jeffrey Shandler,Rutgers University).
