last weekend we visited the tel aviv museum of art to make the last day of the much talked about exhibition of zadok ben-david - 'human nature'. the queues were unbelieveably long but as we went with little hili, we were allowed to jump the queue :). i was so upset when i realised i'd forgotten my sd card and had to take photos using my cellphone (hence the poor quality).
the exhibition was quite wonderful. it began with the 'blackfield' installation. 20,000 laser-cut steel floral silhouettes standing in a bed of sand. they are black on one side. as you walk down the side they seem to disappear and on their reverse side, rainbow colours appear. magical!!!
the larger sculptures were no less amazing. large cut-out figures whose bodies are filled in with tree foliage. after the initial viewing, you realise there is more than first meets the eye. beautiful!
