Invited by Raphael Zagury-Orly, artist Michal Helfman (*1973, Tel Aviv; lives and works in Tel Aviv) conceived COME AS U R – a conversation with objects, an event in which objects, in this case artworks, are placed on a pedestal in the center of the space, surrounded by a circle of guests from various disciplines who are meeting with the objects without any prior knowledge. Through this event and through the decision to “invite“ artworks included in “KEDEM–KODEM–KADIMA” – in which she is participating with her work Forgive, Forget (2013), which was produced on the occasion of “CHANGE,” her solo exhibition presented at CCA Tel Aviv in 2013 – the artist is keeping the exhibition alive after it will come to its end.
The event will be held in Hebrew.
COME AS U R – a conversation with objects is presented as part of the 4th Night of Philosophy, conceived by Raphael Zagury-Orly together with Tilla Rudel, Wolf Iro, and Yael Baruch, and organized by Institut Français and Goethe-Institut.
