Sun Stand Still reflects artist Gal Weinstein’s fascination with the human desire to stop time, with potential forms of construction and destruction, and with progress and devastation. In this project, Weinstein continues to explore the mythological and Romantic images of Zionism embedded in Israeli collective memory. The project will spread over the pavilion’s three levels, with an extension in the courtyard, creating a narrative that may be interpreted as a melancholic-poetic allegory of the Israeli story – one vacillating between miraculous acts and moments of enlightenment and between neglect and destruction; between a megalomaniac and a resounding downfall.
