      Francis Alÿs, Watercolor, Turkey - Aqaba, Jordan, 2010 

      In this poetic video work, Francis Alÿs silently gathers water into a bucket from the shore of the Black Sea in Trabzon, Turkey, and later pours it into the Red Sea, at a beach in Aqaba, Jordan. Watercolor acquires symbolic significance considering the political and religious hostilities in the region, where freedom of movement and interaction with neighbors are sometimes restricted.
