Synopsis: Although raised as Jewish, Orlov was never officially considered to be one. Yahel, is her jewish name, a name that artist gave to herself during the process of converted to Judaism, a process that ends with a ritual immersion in the Mikveh. The installation, consisting of sculptures and a video centers on this artificial moment of “holiness”, cultural ritual that should be called into question.
