On two occasions, between 2018 and 2019, I had the privilege of working on a series of etching at the The Gottesman Etching Center in Kabri, a kibbutz in the north of Israel.
There, together with a master printer, in two rounds of three days each, I have visited and explored the nature of intimacy – an uncontainable substance, shared between one and his very self, and with ones’ other.
In what I consider to be a daring exploration, I have commissioned myself this series of etching, not knowing the individual theme of each and every one of them, but the common one: intimacy.
The prints are on show until Saturday, 30th November, at the Jaffa Museum.
