Threshold is an elevated structure that appears as a wall or bridge rising between two rows of olive trees at the end of The Palestinian Museum’s gardens. Constructed out of galvanised steel and Jerusalem stone, the structure is walled off, almost imprisoned, indicating both access and separation. This is especially relevant today, with the walls and gates that are erected as physical barriers, separating people, obstructing the continuity of land and cementing division as the new norm.
