Named ‘Sway’, this temporary installation has been created by Tel aviv-based architectural Collective Sack and Reicher + Muller, together with fabric expert Eyal Zur. The work has been completed for the third iteration of ‘fugitive structures’, an ongoing series commissioned by Australia’s Sherman contemporary art foundation (SCAF).
The work references Sukkot, an annual festival commemorating the old testament story of the Israelite sheltering in the wilderness en route to the promised land. The design forms an ecological structure that references Israel’s use of scientifically calibrated fabric greenhouses, which make possible the growing of fruit and vegetables in dry and arid landscapes.
