A Part From Me (with Tchelet Ram)
2021, Artport, Tel Aviv


A Part From Me is an exhibition made as a duo with the desire to look at artworks as the result of an intersubjective encounter. The exhibition employs the organizing structure of a house - lobby, kitchen, living room, bedroom, and a parking garage. Onto this architectural outline the artists sought to project their subjectivity.  All the works in the show were made collaboratively while seeking to stretch boundaries and fuse divisions between one and the other.
In this sense, A Part From Me is a two-person show that is also a solo exhibition. This relationship, which revolves around notions of attachment and connectivity, is also implemented in the inner logic of the “individual“ works. The various sculptures in the show propose a materialistic and semiotic cocktail mixing the body and the object; a gradient of bodiliness that spreads across the exhibition space in an effort to merge between the world of man and that of nature. It is in through unity that categories are blurred and the separation between human and animal dissolves.
