Wall No. 2 (Times of Implosion)
Curator: Irit Carmon Popper
Shown as part of Yona Fischer homage exhibition Reading materials
Kupferman collection, Lohamei Hagetaot
Wall No. 2 (Times of Implosion) is a site specific sculpture which referred directly to a Byzantine burial cave from the 4th century AD which is located a few minutes walk from the Kupferman gallery, but locked to the public due to conservation decisions.
In the public performance Each Body to its Own Mater I opened the sculpture to the public allowing each person to explore his body's relationship with the statue freely. I’ve developed the potential that was discovered through this performative event more widely, in the exhibition Rehearsal space.

Curatore: Meital Manor
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, all cultural institutions in Israel were shut down without government support, creating a crisis for Israel’s cultural sphere. The work imports images from a public performance titled "each body to its own matter," alongside the original sculpture (2018). The display of the images on the locked box offices signifies a desire to penetrate through the cultural barrier created in Israel.
The work was part of an event led by the Tel Aviv municipality.
