White clay, wheel-thrown, 60x80x40 produced by Alik Orkin
The fourth Biennale for Israeli Ceramics, Eretz Israel Museum
A shadow on the wall maps a territory. The outline that defines the area between two ceramic vessels forms a space – imaginary or real – of a territorial entity, a state of being.
The light beam and its direction produce changing geometrical formations, a fluidity of the space. The interplay of light and shadow suggests a hallucination as it demonstrates the fragility of our national existence.
