The artist finds inspiration in iconic images. He chooses them because they have already lost their concrete experience and we experience them as a nostalgic memory, he likes to recreate the physically to allow you to feel them again. He is also inspired by carpet shops, routine life, humor and everyday materials.

“Seeing the Israeli Pavilion representing Israel today is like seeing an old passport photo, and wondering why people don’t recognize you in it.”

This installation took the artist two months of planning, six months of producing the work in Israel and one month to install it in Venice. This does not include the time working on the proposal which he has on for a long time before that. His main concern was with the actual production and making sure that the work has a tactile and physical experience and not look like a theatrical stage. Working with concrete materials is very different from working on modeling plans in Photoshop.
