“Do you imagine things?”
A video documenting a simple performance. The video connects two spaces, the old and the new market location. “Do you imagine things?” is a performance that took place in the old Abdali Market location which is now an abandoned space used as a parking lot, and marketed by the municipality as “ An Under Rehabilitation Project”, suspended in an inbetween space. The video was screened on a borrowed tv screen in the new market location in Ras El Ein in a shop selling electrical used appliances.
The performance is the simple act of walking in the imagined market that stood here once, following routes that are no longer relevant in the empty space between the cars guided by the grid of the fading blue lines that once marked the spots of the stands that have been relocated.
The imagined and the real, the past and the present, the present and the absent all intertwine into one.
