The Artists’ Colony in Hutzot Hayotzer
Remember” is one of the basic commandments of Judaism – “remember what Amalek did to you”, “remember the Sabbath day”, national memorial days and holidays like Passover, Chanukah, Purim, Yom Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Day), Holocaust Remembrance Day, Tisha B’Av, the 17th of Tamuz, Israel’s State Memorial Day and others, were all marked to remember key points in Jewish history. Remembering the past also gives meaning to the present and to the future, a memory that has preserved the Jewish people in long periods of exile and a memory that is the glue that binds the people of the State today: “We are all the bereaved families”, even if each of us has his own personal memory and grief.
For this special exhibition, 25 Hutzot Hayotzer artists each present an item of their works on the subject and ritual of Memory – refining the emotions behind the pain, the longing and the memory of those long gone with an object of use – candle, goblet, memorial board, monument or relic.
The artists’ workshops are open Sunday through Thursday 10:00-17:00, Fridays from 10:00-14:00. Free admission.
