i’ve been putting off this post for the last two weeks due to being very busy. dorit is in japan with her mother and sister and i am getting to know the washing machine intimately. i’m also beginning to wrap up ‘malki’s legacy’ and have put hours into a multimedia presentation summarizing the project. it’s not ready for display yet – i sent a draft to arnold roth, malki’s father, for review. i am very anxiously awaiting to hear his first impressions.
but, two weeks ago, tamar summoned me urgently to her school one evening. the students majoring in art put up an exhibition of their work and there was something she said i just have to see. she was right!
my 2.5 blog followers are probably acquainted with dor, who weights about 50% of those 2.5 faithful readers, and often comments on some of the posts. i am honored to feature this body of work by dor dan:
small workers, by dor dan
i stood in front of dor’s prints, each of the four sized at 60cmx60cm in black & white, in awe. it was a “wow!” moment for me and i really enjoyed it because it’s not often i have one of those moments. this body of work, with only four frames, is very strong and it touched my soul. i’m not very good at explaining my feelings … awe, sorrow, shock, compassion, … i don’t know. but it is definitely very strong! and it stood out, even shouted out, among all the other projects exhibited.
if you click the image you’ll be taken to dor’s site where you can read his thoughts and intentions (in hebrew).
** dor – did i translate the title well? please correct me if necessary.
