Yifat Bezalel: Tehilla
The Rappaport Prize for a Young Israeli Artist, 2016
Yifat Bezalel creates environments in which drawings in graphite on paper are merged with video screenings. Her oeuvre is centered on a yearning for spiritual dimensions and the complex relations between fiction and reality. Tehilla, S.Y. Agnon's righteous heroine, stands at the core of this exhibition and makes overt and covert links between an interpretation of the novella and elements of the installation in the gallery.
The exhibition and the catalogue were made possible thanks to the Bruce & Ruth Rappaport Foundation, with the assistance of Keren Bar-Gil
The video work Tehilla was made with the support of The Israel Lottery Council for the Art
