Klik Klak, an installation project by well-known artist Maya Gordon, is on display at Warsaw's Nizio Gallery until Nov. 30. Klik Klak is a house without walls created entirely from contours, and it melds into the interior of the 19th-century tenement in which the gallery is housed.

Gordon approaches "peace", a concept that straddles history, society, art and politics, through her installations and photomurals of public spaces in Israel. The inspiration for Klik Klak came from empty houses in Israel. Gordon noticed in Jaffa a ruined house, fenced off with barbed wire and bearing a sign stating "State of Israel, Do Not Enter".

Gordon was born in Chorzów in 1947 and emigrated to Israel in 1957. She graduated from the Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem, and did postgraduate work at the Jan van Eijck Academy in Maastricht, Netherlands. She has been living in the Netherlands since 1972.
