Pivotal to her practice is the constant desire of humans to create sovereign ideologies by drawing limits, borders, and frontiers, sometimes even controlling nature and moving soil. Littwitz’s interest in a specific stretch of land – namely Israel and Palestinian territories – stems from its status as a crossroads of religions, geography, and politics; water, soil, and sky; mythologies, beliefs, and momentous transitions. Her works echo its biblical and modern narratives, presenting us with diverse examples of transition, transfiguration, and the formation of political constructs through acts of belief.
