Like many of you I regularly sign online petitions in protest of different issues but as an artist I rarely get the chance to sound my voice in an environment which is so in tune with some of my more political work like The Crying Game.
But when that happens it’s an absolute delight.
I feel therefore incredibly honoured and excited that the Museum on the Seam, a socio-political contemporary art museum located on the geographic seam line between East and West of Jerusalem, has invited me to show my complete portfolio of 30 prints.
The Crying game prints are a cry of outrage against violence and intolerance and as a female artist I often use images to protest or raise awareness of injustices done to women who, especially in times of social upheaval, be it war or fear of change, often bear the brunt of suffering and exploitation.
Each plate confronts the viewer with a different kind of brutality, from drug addiction to knife fights, from throwing acid to sex slavery, highlighting present day questions about gender, war, immigration, sexual politics etc.
That these prints will be shown in such an unique museum, an institution dedicated to dialogue, understanding and coexistence and the first socio-political museum in Israel for contemporary art, promoting equality, human rights and diversity is a match made in heaven.
Come and see for yourselves!
You are warmly invited to the opening on Friday 27 September at 11.00 a.m,
the artist will be present.
