Selected Solo and group exhibitions
Chocolate Heidi, Solo Exhibition
September 2021, Meierhüsli by Heidiseum, Zurich. Curated by Peter Büttner and Peter Polzin.
The exhibition features a photo series which is inspired by old postcards from the Holy Land. In the photos Heidi is situated in different touristic locations around israel. For me, Heidi is a symbol of childhood innocence and home-longing. In the photos Heidi looks as if she was taken from a different scenery, and put in an unfamiliar middle-eastern environment. The exhibition also includes a chocolate sculpture which was created at Confiserie Sprüngli chocolate factory, and was based on a 3D scan of the dancer Tamar Rozensweig.
Speciel thanks to Confiserie Sprüngli for supporting the project
Donut at the Cemetry, Solo Exhibition
July-Agust 2021, Koresh 14 Gallery, Jerusalem. Curated by Dvir Shaked.
Solo exhibition which was inspired by my personal expereince in Buschwick, New York in 2017-2018. The exhibition included a small scale model which was handmade mainly from cardboard, and depicted the nearby area of my house at the time, the Evergreen Cemetry and a Dunkin' Donuts branch. The exhibition also included a video piece which reflects my personal encounter as a foreigner with the American culture. In Donut at the Cemetry video work, I eat a donut for seven and a half minutes and it was inspired by the iconic work by Andy Warhol eating a burger. The work deals with issues of homosexual hidden motives in the American pop culture, and is also a personal reflection of the relationship between life and death and between art, food and consumerism.
This exhibition took place thanks to the generous support of ARTIQ - Israel LGBTQ Art Fund.
