Ilan Yona’s ironic sweatshop is a factory for fairy-making, whose every worker is in the image of the artist. He is seen busy with manual labor, wholly immersed in a Sisyphean sewing work of disillusioned dreams, while a fault in production accidentally beheads one of the fairies.
The video Installation presents various stages in the production, consumption and disposal of fairies. It presents a fictional world where the only existing merchandise is a fairy doll. The viewer is taken on a journey between a sweatshop where the fairies are manufactured, a point of view fly through the eye of a fairy into extinction, and an intimate encounter with the typical fairy consumer.
