Peter Greenaway, Heavy Water
Chellouche Gallery,Tel Aviv (Israel).
World famous British filmmaker and artist Peter Greenaway is launching his world première of the new, spectacular project Heavy Water, a multimedia project by Change Performing Arts, at Chelouche Gallery, Tel Aviv.
Heavy Water, Greenaway's new project at Chelouche Gallery, is a theatrical and dramatic mix of sound, painting, drawing and video, accompanied by the issue of an art book. It elicits apocalyptic thoughts and contains an ostensibly prophetic warning concerning nuclear proliferation and the future of our planet. Obtained by an artificial process, heavy water is used as coolant and moderator in nuclear reactors. The melting of icebergs is likewise caused by human intervention in nature. These two catastrophes—of fire and water—threaten to strike before long.
