Antje Majewski is inspired by ancient agriculture and its spread from the Fertile Crescent to Germany, the story of Jacob and Esau, the history of wheat, and the linguistic connections between Afro-asiatic languages (i.e. Arabic, Hebrew, Somali, Amharic, Hausa, Oromo, Tamazight). These interests are manifested in Majewski’s Landscape Painting, an installation comprised of a video, a poem, and a large painting made collaboratively with people based in or around Tel Aviv whose names correspond
to geographic, natural and cosmic elements, such as valleys, fields, trees, flowers, the sun and the moon, etc. The deep connections to the land of Israelis, Palestinians, and other local groups are often expressed through the poetry of their names. By paralleling these eponymous metaphors with visual counterparts, Majewski literally mirrors back to us a landscape representational of our collective sense of place.
