Dirty Mind 

Installation, Dvir gallery, Tel Aviv 2017

Nylon threads suspend multitude hovering broom heads from the ceiling. Wax drippings from on top of the brooms sully the gallery’s floor and a PVC sheet placed underneath the structure. The installation resembles a flock of birds dropping while flying in the air. In Jewish culture a broom is a metaphor of the righteous man the takes on him the sins of the congregation while purifying the world.
