By the throat

Effi & Amir & 75' — 2021

Starting from a security check procedure at the entrance to the Tel Aviv airport, By The Throat takes us on the exploration of a more deeply engraved border, albeit an invisible one. A border that defines the sounds we can emit and the words we can pronounce. We carry with us these sonic and anatomical limits, created by our mother-tongue, becoming ourselves a mobile check-point, wherever we are.
