Khaled Jarrar 'Hunger Wall'
image
Tying together dozens of freshly baked circular loaves of bread and attaching them onto a frame positioned at the mouth of a tunnel integrated into the BAANA, a pedestrian passage running through the city Helsinki, Khaled Jarrar’s ‘performative intervention’ represents the fine line between comfort and suffering, prosperity and poverty. Inviting the public to take part in the construction of the 'Hunger Wall', various people give their reactions to the work with one elderly lady recalling a time during the depression when she had to eat bread baked from the flour usually fed to animals. She goes on to observe that young people today have no idea about hardship and just how quickly life can change with unemployment and economic strife. 
 
Hunger Wall installation took place in Helsinki in March 2014.
