« Keep It Light »: Vessels for Memorial and Remembrance Candles in the Contemporary Jewish Art of the Bezalel school at The Jerusalem Biennale:
The exhibition Keep It Light, at the Skirball Museum of Biblical Archaeology (13 King David Street Jerusalem), addresses the end of life, a painful topic that for many is a watershed in the topography of the life cycle. Despite the seriousness and gravity of the subject, this exhibition focuses on black humor, irony and absurdity. Through the display of vessels for memorial and remembrance candles created with unusual and innovative perspectives, the exhibition aims to surprise and stimulate the viewer to reconsider the place of death within the lifecycle, the mourning process and the religious customs associated with each.
