Drummerrsss is a new multi-channel video installation by Gilad Ratman that will be installed at The Jewish Museum in Berlin as part of their permanent exhibition, opening Spring 2020. The video presents two drummers – one playing from inside a deep hole in the ground, and the other playing suspended from the sky – as metaphors for the nation-state and spiritual belief systems – to address how these two elements play key roles in the formation of individual and collective identities. Drummerrsss strives to relate to concepts of the nation-state and spiritual belief systems by integrating the elements of earth and air by means of rhythm, beat, and sound.
