(The Rootless Character)

This group exhibition focuses on the rootless [talush] character, which first appeared in new Hebrew literature a century ago and still frequents it today. Although portrayed in a plastic language, the talush wandered within the poetic discourse of writers. His adoption into a world that does not speak a natural language is an act of defection, relishing the relationship between literature and visual arts.

Participating artists: Assaf Abutbul,
Raya Bruckenthal, Sharon Fadida and Assaf Magal, Raffi Lavie, Peter Jacob Maltz, Michal Na’aman, Amir Nave,
