Eye of the mountain
Curator: Yaniv Lachman
Almacen gallery, Jaffa
The exhibition Eye of the Mountain was based on a body of works of drawings and monoprints that drew inspiration from cave paintings and ancient Egyptian mythology.
The exhibition title refers to the Egyptian goddess Hathor, who was believed to control resources such as minerals, rocks, copper and pigments. Hathor is also the goddess inside the mountain, who accepts the dead and helps them to move on. This exhibition sought to release me from my tangled relationship with my late uncle and namesake Michel, a painter who was killed in a fatal car accident in his youth.
The attempt to undo this knot was made by piercing the gallery walls with the star chart map of the time of Michel's death. However, instead of the sun and other major planets - the moon, Jupiter, Venus etc. - I replaced them with my prints, creating my own solar system in the sky of his death.
The exhibition was supported by the Yehoshua Rabinovich Foundation
