THE ECOURCHE (2013)

The "Ecourche' – flaying" series is composed of large scale fabric figures made from only one white cotton sheet, folded and hand stitched which hover between sculpture and drawing revealing the textile qualities: tactility, flexibility and  foldability .No doubt, stitching is my Mother Tongue. Solo exhibition "Children, Children, please come home", gesture to the Israeli artist and dolls maker Edith Samuel/ Municipal Art  Gallery, Rishon-Le-Zion. ​

 

The sculptures were created by wrapping the fabric around the body, folding stitching and peeling which result in emptied suspended sloughing. These characters have become ghosts of my childhood. ​ It raises the interest question about the body surface-skin as the place where identity is formed and assigned.  I find myself continuing to deal with the issue concern the depth of the surface. I am interested in the way the past intervenes the present.
