Had Gadya: Cycle of Horror
Curator: Sophia Dekel-Caspi

How long will the cycle of horror go on? / Persecutor is persecuted, beater is beaten, / When will this madness cease? - Chava Alberstein, Had Gadya, 1989

The exhibition "Had Gadya" addresses the foretold tragic cyclicality at the core of our existence. Work on it began before the onset of the events taking place these days in Europe as well as here, events that reinforce the never-ending cycle of horror and blood and man's nullity facing these occurrences. The cumulating visual dialogue raises questions and thoughts about the national and the personal.
The exhibition brings together artists working in different media, whose visual language delves into the theme of cyclicality. It features some 20 artists, who present existing and new, individual and collaborative works, spanning the wide cultural range that constitutes our private and public identity, as manifested in current issues: cultural, national, ethnic, territorial, gender, etc. The selected cluster of works offers a broad picture, shedding light on different facets of the subject, emerging from the artists' personal experiences, word-image relations, their sources of inspiration, style, technique, and the chosen visual representation.

Artists: Etti Abergel, Sharon Balaban, Eliahou Eric Bokobza, Yosef Joseph, Yaakov Dadoune, Avi Ganor, Tsuki Garbian, Pesi Girsch, Assaf Gruber, Raafat Hattab, Jonathan Hirschfeld, Keren Katz and Eran Hadas, Moran Kliger, Gabi Kricheli, Joseff Krispel, Assi Meshullam, Adi Oz-Ari, Dafna Shalom, Ronen Siman Tov, Shlomo Vazana, Tamir Zadok
