UNSTAGED / A PLAY NOT PLAYED, 2015
Seven scenes unfold in these mixed media works, which together compose one series that I had created in collaboration with writer and dramatist Oren Neeman. Together, we crafted narrative vignettes out of a collage of materials ranging from sand and fabric to found objects.
Each scene tells a tale based on the lives of two women: The sacrificed daughter of the biblical judge and warrior, Jephthah, and the legendary Israeli actress, Hanna Rovina. I had also inserted stories from my own life experiences into the works. Joining together different narratives and moments in time, the women’s stories merged into scenes of suffering, rage and regret.
