“Nimrod Roundabout” was taken just hours prior to the museum’s reopening, and it focuses on the final cleaning-up operations in the main lobby, where Itzhak Danziger’s sculpture “Nimrod” stands as a centerpiece. When the images are screened in rapid succession, the anonymous worker maneuvering the floor scrubber is blurred, his repetitive circular movement around the gleaming icon that has become a symbol of Israeli art assumes the aspect of a ritual dance around a sacred figure – reminicent, perhaps, of the hands of a clock moving between the ephemeral and the eternal, between the human and the sublime. Yairi’s photographic odyssey concludes at this very moment, when the ancient patriarch “Nimrod”, carved from desert sandstone, stands on its pedestral in the spotless temple.
