Iron Song

Skizze Gallery, Jerusalem
6 Sept 2012

The piece began with a drawing from a number of years ago. The drawing was of an empty white shirt holding a steam iron. I have wanted to do a performance of ironing for years but have never taken the opportunity to develop the piece.  When the directors of the Skizze Gallery invited me to do a performance at the Art ארט арт group show, I decided now is the time.

Tamara at the Turquoise Butterfly gemach (sort of like a Goodwill or St Vincent’s) donated the use of 60 white shirts for the piece. The ironing board was borrowed from a friend I ran into unexpectedly.

Thanks to Marina G and Sura S for language assistance on the song translations.
