Friday morning in Talpiot Industrial Zone. The preparations for Shabath are in full swing, traffic is heavy, the garages are full, the sound of horns fills the air. In all this hustle and bustle, you enter the building, climb the stairs and open a door to a quiet, unique and intimate world. You have arrived to one of the most compelling encounters you will have this year – you have reached Artist’s Appointment: Dozens of studio sessions held throughout the neighborhood, offering a fresh and informal platform for getting to know the artists who work in Jerusalem.
This year, the event will center around the concept of “Dead End” – an unsettling situation that derails the artist’s studio work, often accompanied by a sense of helplessness and a longing for salvation.
At times, artists reach a “dead-end” – uninspired and unable to move to the next thing. Mental inertia, personal disenchantment, and the challenge of overcoming the temporary crisis in the studio can sometime lead to new, subversive, and unexpected directions that shape and inform the artwork.
Artist’s Appointment invites you for an intimate a-formal 30-minute journey, during which you will get to know the process of the artist when he or she found themselves at a dead end. You will hear about exit solutions, collaborations formed as a result of disappointments, about discipline and self-practice as salvation practice, and how limitation can become the driving force for action.
