Tamar Hirschfeld: Neuland
Tamar Hirschfeld’s tragi-comic video installation examines issues of post-colonialism and gender. Adopting a nomadic persona, Hirschfeld has been wandering, gazing at marginal areas and weakened populations. Through folktales, ancient myths and a fictitious love story between the artist and a human skeleton excavated near the Dead Sea, the exhibition reveals a complex, intricate reality dealing with history and memory, with refugees and immigrants.
The exhibition was made possible thanks to donations by the Ostrovsky Family Fund, Outset Contemporary Art Fund and The Young Friends of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art; it is supported by Mifal HaPais Council for the Culture and Arts.
