Our Best Intentions ( 2013-14 ) is one of the most important and ambitious projects of the Israeli artist. A work that has been presented from the beginning in a performing double version and into a video detachable or visible together.
This video installation is divided into four parts. Each part portrays a different domestic surroundings.
Each video present a group of participants selected by an open call, directed in a series of actions by a guide. Each guide is coming from a slightly different professional field, all located in the spectrum between therapy and performing arts. Each of these guides in their turn will lead their group in a unique 10 minute workshop designed as a collaboration between the artist and that specific guide. This multi-channel video, which will be presented only in the main space of the Canal|05, along with a series of photos, drawings and objects presented in the project room of the gallery.
This work was realized by the artist also as a live performance that was presented in Performa 13.
Einat Amir has defined her work as a " readymade " or rather an "appropriation " a reconsideration through Duchamp's lesson of what today is important to extract from reality to be shown in a different context . A process that Einat Amir focuses on human behavior and on its expressive and artistic abilities.
