About Tracing oblivion

A project mapping the death camp Sobibor on the basis of maps which were assembled from testimonies and findings unearthed by archaeologists working at the camp in recent years. My father was one of the survivors of this camp and the works are objects of memory as I translate them into snippets of porcelain, characterizing maps or mapping documents tracing my father after the war. The other objects are also connected to the findings found on the site or symbols linked to war industries and the ideas at their basis. The project was implemented in the Netherlands at the international ceramic center at Hertogenbosch EKWC. The project was exhibited in 2013  at the Periscope Gallery in Tel Aviv, in 2014 at Florentine 45 - Contemporary Art Space, and in 2015 at the Ceramics Museum in Berlin.
