Artist’s wall | Mixed Memories

Opening: 27/10/17 - Closing: 1/12/17

Artist: Cornelia Renz hosts Michelle Medenblik and Belle Shafir

Michelle Medenblik’s work ZONE is part documentary, part conceptual, and is based on extensive research, interviews, and many visits to the former Stasi Headquarters and the former Stasi prison in Berlin.

Sketches on transparent paper allow Belle Shafir to restudy her history. She deals with the gap between the stories captured in the family photo albums and her own vague memories. The characters of the albums are revived in short animations.

Art Cube Artists' Studios

The Art Cube Artists' Studios was established in 1982 by the Jerusalem Foundation. It was the first Israeli art institution to offer artists a subsidized work space for an extensive period of time, in the aim of fostering artistic practice in Jerusalem. The complex includes 15 studios for professional artists from all fields of visual art. The artists, who are selected by an artistic committee, can work in the complex for a period of up to five years. Over the years, the Studios hosted some of the best artists working in Israel, including Larry Abramson, Asaf Ben Zvi, Amnon Ben Ami, Avi Sabach, Masha Zusman, Etti Abergel, Shai Azoulay and more. The complex includes a gallery – a public gallery that compliments and exposes the artists' activity in the studios. In addition, it hosts contemporary exhibitions and projects created especially for the Gallery, thus taking an active and influential part in the artistic-cultural discourse in Jerusalem. The Gallery was founded in 2010 thanks to the Georges and Jenny Bloch Foundation, the Dr. Georg and Josi Guggenheim Foundation, and the Adolf and Mary Mil Foundation, and operates at the Art Cube Artists' Studios with the continued support of the Lloyd Foundation, through the Jerusalem Foundation.
