Seeds of Bliss in Jerusalem, Israel
Jerusalem, Israel. 7th September, 2017. Jews and Arabs meet at the Israel Museum to crack sunflower seeds and spit the shells as part of Seeds of Bliss, a project by artist Noam Edry. Inspired by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei's 2010 installation at London's Tate Museum with hundreds of tons of sculptured porcelain hand painted sunflower seeds, Edry aims to connect the people of the Middle East in cracking and eating 10 tons of real sunflower seeds and to return a mountain of shells for display in the Tate Museum. Events have already taken place in Aqaba, Eilat, Nablus, Haifa, Bethlehem, Umm El Fahm, Jenin and Afula.
