Jerusalem-born, Brooklyn-based Ettun uses sculpture, video, and performance art to invert the semiotics of our existing cultural, social, religious, and personal rituals. A conceptual heiress of Baldessari, Levinas [“Lautre c’est moi”], and Boetti [‘everything contains its opposite’], Ettun creates movement-study sculptures rigged to shatter our well-defined physical and psychological territories. Amorphous devices such as parachute habitats and concrete-cast shoes conflate our accepted binaries of permanence/impermanence, static/kinetic, participant/spectator, and military/civilian, to name a few.
