STENCIL IN

 

Made in collaboration with Noa Urbach.

This series of photographs, all documenting graffiti works and including a female figure, was made during a half year study-abroad in Berlin. However, these works do not exist in the city streets but were created in the safe atmosphere of our computer, by adding our figures to various walls. Other than questioning the status of Graffiti art, which by now has become a well-commodified art genre losing part of its radical origin, this work also relates to our state of estrangement. As young artists, Jewish, Israeli residents in the German capital, we subversively inserted ourselves into the public art sphere, however, this act remains minor and inverted; a mere unfulfilled potential.
