The expression “spoils of war” does not, normally, conjure up particularly positive thoughts or pictures. In Hili Greenfeld’s case, at least, the contraband was put to good creative use.

Greenfeld did not do any pilfering herself, but her latest installation-exhibition “The Sweet Water Canal,” currently in progress at Art Cube – Artists’ Studios Jerusalem, directly feeds off artifacts taken from the abandoned home of an Egyptian artist who lived near the Suez Canal during the Yom Kippur War.
