Detail from an installation “the Nine Lives of a Wandering Jew”

Made of magnetig stones (hematite),  iron, pearls and  wooden shoe stretchers.

Between the magnitic stones I have  placed Hebrew  and Yiddish notes and texts. I incotporated the color yellow to symbolize sunshine and joy but also te represent the color of the badges Jews were forced to wear during the Second World War ; badges designed to make millions of people outcasts. The wounded wanderor produces through his wandering a pearl. An oyster that has ever been wounded will never produce pearls….

The wooden shoe stretchers as a metaphor, the emblem of a long journey through eternity…DSC_0078DSC_0084DSC_0143-001DSC_0144-001DSC_0033-001
