The Good Seed, 2012
In this performance, the artist will spend all her time sorting grains of corn depending on their colour and size. She will thus create a number of monochrome piles of grain. Through this act which involves judgment, sorting, separation and stockpiling, Ninar Esber speaks of minorities. She seeks to provoke thinking about the process by which the “other” is held at bay, about the forced exodus of populations who, like many in particular in the Near East, have long lived in mixed communities”.
