“Stranger” by Naama Tsabar, is a video work featuring two musicians, who negotiate the use of a new instrument comprised of two chromed plated electric guitars put together at their back. The act of multiplying serves almost as a handicap, imposing new movement and sound. Throughout the video the performers explore the use of the object both separately and together, resulting in a dance that moves at once through gentle and violent states. Establishing a new kind of intimacy, they explore the relationship between two bodies that hold one shared border.
