Shelter

2012

Bronze, 350 × 480 × 125 cm

This work consists of a hollow bronze cast of an old bomb shelter that was slated for demolition and which I encountered in south Tel Aviv.

I had made a mold of the shelter’s external and visible part as well as of its internal staircase, which led underground. The cast entrance and the stairway had become in my work one uprooted structure. The unseen, subterranean part of the shelter was not at viewers’ eye level, and the original floor level was pushed above the ground.
