Christine Kettaneh
The Tipping Point, 2017

Sound installation
Location: Jezzine rooftop and garden 

The word Jezzine originally meant ‘store’ or ‘depot’ in Aramaic. Famous for its water and waterfalls, Kettaneh reflects on Jezzine as both a human and a water bearer. During her stay in Jezzine, she collected vocalizations of water and asked locals to imitate the sound of a water source for her. She collected the voice of a baker, a cutlery maker, a shop owner, an aspiring 6 year-old performer, a Dota player and many others. With these drops of voices, she hoped to create a human channel streaming through the village leading finally towards a temporary storage space.
