Tal Yerushalmi

Neither Day Nor Night

Curator: Tali Ben Nun

The geographical location of Jerusalem – perched, as it is, on a high mountain at the cusp of the Judean Desert, with all its archaeological findings – has had a decisive impact on Yerushalmi’s new body of work. Yet these works do not depict a physical place, with a certain historical, political and geographic narrative, but a metaphysical one. [Continue reading..]

Mira Hermoni-Levine

Still Life

Curator: Meira Perry-Lehmann

In her exhibition, Mira Hermoni-Levin shows works that were made from 1990 to 2017. Hermoni-Levin paints in oil on canvas, revisiting the same themes over and over again, as if doomed to Sisyphean repetition, in an endless bid to perfect her subjects. Her oeuvre comprises two groups of works: one includes depictions of a girl in a white dress staring frontally at the viewer, possibly a self-portrait or a specter; the other – on view in the current exhibition – portrays still-life objects that are not still.

Maria Saleh Mahameed

Fahmaweya

Curator: Dorit Ringart

Exhibition in the 21st Nidbach series

Maria Saleh Mahameed prefers large, scroll-like formats. In her work Umm al-Fahm (2016, charcoal on canvas), Saleh Mahameed drew the iconic seated figure in profile quoted from Tsibi Geva’s paintings of the same name (1983, acrylic on canvas), adding an additional feminine figure with long hair, wearing a pleated skirt. This is how the artist depicts herself – in a concise, decisive line drawing. Saleh Mahameed corresponds with Geva’s paintings driven by the need to speak about Umm al-Fahm, her native city, in the direct speech of someone born and bred there. Hearing what outsiders say about Umm al-Fahem is difficult for her. [Continue reading..]
