Zipora Rafelov. התבוננות לעומק – Rapt in Contemplation

With a 3D drawing pen, Rafaelov draws structures made of quickly solidifying plastic in the space. Using a light source aligned to the installation of lines, shadow images appear on one wall of the exhibition space. Light and shadow let a relation emerge between the drawn object and its projected image. The artist thus metaphorically refers to the connection between heaven and earth.
The installation seeks to create a meditative atmosphere of calmness and deceleration for the viewers. With this show, the Kunsthalle Mannheim takes part in the special festival year “1,700 Years of Jewish Life in Germany” and reinforces its commitment to communicating present-day Jewish culture.
