Hebrew lesson [2011]

Objects, sand, table, video (sound, color), photo and text. MFA Gallery, Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Tel Aviv, Israel.

In my family, Judaism was a rumor of the past, like Europe, like Germany. Our destiny was to be perfect Brazilians. But throughout his life, my father tried to learn Hebrew. Several years he studied alone with an audiovisual method that resounded through the house. In his life this sound became a kind of liturgy, I guess. This room connects the trial to learn Hebrew with German heritage, both sand and emptiness. But there are things transmited by absence, by denial, by trying to erase them. [L.D., Tel Aviv, 2011]
