Art Gallery: Eliahou Eric Bokobza from the collection of Tsale Kirzner  18 July until 28 September 2014

Yezur Mekomi, 2007, olie op canvas, verguld aluminiumWanderings: paintings by Eliahou Eric Bokobza from the collection of Tsale Kirzner

Journeys, life stories, and dreams of two wanderers come together in the current exhibition: Eliahou Eric Bokobza, an Israel-based artist of Tunisian origin, born in Paris, and Tsale Kirzner, a Netherlands-based collector of Polish origin, born in Curaçao.

With a blend of humour and criticism, orientalism is infused with new life in the featured works. Reproduced symbols and local heroes are situated in  controversial landscapes representing the dream of a Promised Land and, at the same time, the sharply contrasting reality.

Curator: Ronit Eden
