Wire(less) Connections


    May 27 2016 - March 14 2017
  • Curator: Daniella Shalev
  • Weinstein Gallery, Ruth Youth Wing
What is the significance of ties – real and metaphorical – and what role do they play? Who tugs at our heartstrings? Who weaves the thread of our life? When do wires combine to form a network – and when a tangle? The exhibition moves between two poles: from the primal thread of human existence – the umbilical cord – to the ramification of wireless connections such as the social networks. The art on show, by Israeli and international contemporary artists, employs various kinds of threads and deals with personal, social, and cultural issues, inviting the entire family to pull the strings and discover countless connections.Dvora Morag A Set Table, 2005 Installation; pottery, jute, sewing thread, metal thread Collection of the artist, Tel AvivZipora Rafaelov Flow (detail), 2016 Installation, site-specific; threads Collection of the artist, DüsseldorfEdna Ohana13,000 Meters, 2016
