‘A country cannot prosper without a proper king or constitutional head to guide it; so also the human body cannot prosper without healthy brain’ (B.K.S Iyenger)

 

In September 1957, the first prime minister of Israel, David Ben Gurion, went down to the beach of Herzliya city accompanied by photojournalist

and performed a headstand pose to everyone’s amazement.

HEADSTAND is a 30 minutes video work which documents me performing the traditional headstand pose in the Israeli’s governmental area in Jerusalem in September 2016.
