“Cigarettes are Cheaper in Poland (Border Crossing)” is a durational video piece taking place simultaneously between the German-Polish border (Frankfurt an der Oder, DE / Słubice, PL) and Jerusalem, Israel/Palestine. Performed on the 80th anniversary of the Nazi invasion into Poland -September 1, 2019- the work is thought of as a “counter-invasion clandestine walk” in the opposite direction, from Poland into Germany. Envisioned as an elegy to my recently deceased grandfather, the video is intercut with place-names from his testimony as a war survivor. To avoid detention by the border police, a Go-Pro camera was attached to my ankle. Special thanks to Ali El-Darsa.
