Snow at Ajami
project - ‘Someone, I tell, will remember us’, Binyamin Gallery, Tel Aviv.
From the text of Iris Pshedezki, the curator of the exhibition:
"...Shira Meshulam Hezekiah exemplifies fragments from the past: she paints ghost pictures from her childhood home in Ajami, Jaffa. Alone on a large empty wall lies the solitary floor of an Arab house that was copied and recorded in its original size. Doubles drawings, round as holes for a glimpse into the past, including objects left in a house in Jaffa. Shira inscribed in her handwriting the works of her artistic parents: the sculptures created by her father are repeatedly transformed in the drawings and woodcuts. The oil paintings are part of a series of pictures drawn from an 8 mm film in which the artist's mother separates from her friends and their world on the eve of her immigration to Israel."
