> DESCRIPTION

Beauty and mystery envelop every single part of this complex installation by Yehudit Sasportas, a prominent Israeli artist who lives and works in Berlin and Tel Aviv, and for whom this is the first solo exhibition in an Israeli museum in over a decade. Composed of sculptures, video works, and drawings – some intimate in scale, others covering entire walls – it is structured as a multitrack journey connecting different layers of the artist’s consciousness and affording a glimpse into the deepest recesses of her mind. Viewers are invited to wander among her enigmatic sculptures, such as a piano lying on its side, a tent, and a “magnetic table,” moving through forest, moor, and moonlit landscapes imbued with conscious and unconscious, physical and emotional forces.
