WIZO Haifa Academy of Design and Education,
In my project, I create a series of photographed and scanned images on a home printer and examine the medium of photography and its boundaries through dealing with different materials and connecting them in collage works. The works make up a kind of personal portraits through photographing and dismantling the body as well as digital scans of the decay created on live objects. They range from esthetics to decay and disgust, simulating my sense towards myself. By assembling and dismantling myself and other objects, I examine their effects on me and examine and present the effect on the family circumstances in which I grew up. In my family, the food business was central.
It is directly related to our emotions, memory, and socio-economic status. My grandmother's mother was a very large woman who became ill due to obesity. The fear of being like that was ingrained in my grandmother, who passed it on to future generations. In time, I realized that the grotesque and large body had always piqued my interest. The large area form, the shedding layers, the folds, the curves, and the connections between the parts of the body that resist caused me some discomfort, and at the same time, I seemed charged and burning. During the work, I realized that not only fat interests me, but body image and self-image are broader concepts. They raise questions in me that bring me together with myself, with family, and society and confront me with the sources for creating the negative self-image.
I investigate the same dissonances while trying to disassemble and reassemble in my work. The body image and the self-image were shaken. Their virtues could be clearer to me, and they raise questions that drive my work process.
I started combining sculptural work with photographic work. The physical, three-dimensional material expresses the anxiety and obsession that drives my self-search. Repetitive and obsessive disassembly and assembly operations are the ones that motivate me to disassemble and reassemble my image from my intimate observation of the present, memories, and emotions through dialogue with myself and the environment. Search for empathy and identification.
