Artists Depict Life in Tel Aviv With 'Sleeping in Our Beds'
For a select group of young Israelis, conveying their emotional responses to the country's current economic and social state is best achieved through art. Sleeping in Our Beds, an exhibit opening this week at Artstation Gallery, brings a group of these creative endeavors together. Curated by Artstation owners Shiri Ben-Artzi and Aya Shoham, the show features documentary-style pictures by Sharon Derhy, and an optical illusion piece from Ori Levin that masks the Dome of the Rock. Yael Frank helped to inspire the exhibit, contributing an installation in which the phrase "sleeping in our beds" is buried beneath silver paper clippings and revealed when a fan scatters the clippings about. Those who visit the show will see there's even more to uncover.
'Sleeping in Our Beds' will be on display from September 6 – November 17, 2012
