part of Good Neighbors, a site-specific event Ticho house- The Israel Museum, Jerusalem

painting installation , oil on melamine in antique frames and satin ribbons

200/100cm

2014

The installation relates to fictitious neighborly relations between famous dwellers of Ha'Neviim St. in Jerusalem: Dr. Abraham Ticho and his wife, artist Anna Ticho, the exiled empress of Ethiopia, the English painter Holman Hunt, The Rabbi Kook and others. Despite the fact that some of these people never actually met, the paintings in the installation unite them in a new fictional and hazed local cultural-heritage
tree.
