SIDEWALK SUKKAH by artists Dede Bandaid and Nitzan Mintz

The Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan is honored to present Shelter, a site-specific sukkah created by the artists Dede Bandaid and Nitzan Mintz that will be constructed on Amsterdam Avenue, just south of 76th Street.

Dede and Nitzan are Tel Aviv-based artists who work in the public sphere. Their collaborations highlight their individual strengths: Dede works with assemblage, collage, and painting while Nitzan creates visual poetry, giving verbal and physical form to personal and collective struggles. While Dede and Nitzan were inspired by the rituals of building temporary shelters in ancient Israel, Shelter’s wooden birds invoke the stages of flight, calling on us to think about the troubled migrations of so many children and adults  in today’s world. The poems, which create entrances to Shelter, describe a dreamlike state of being rootless that’s laced with both despair and hope. Nestled within Shelter’s walls is a colorful assemblage wall made from different discarded materials sourced from the streets of New York, recalling the bright decorations of a traditional sukkah in Israel.
