Art of the arte­fact

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

One of the artworks cur­rently on show at the Is­rael Mu­seum in Jerusalem is this col­lage by artist Ilit Azoulay. The work, part of a col­lec­tion ti­tled ‘No Thing Dies’ (on dis­play un­til De­cem­ber 2), was in­spired by the mu­seum it­self. Ms Azoulay in­ter­viewed mu­seum em­ploy­ees, learn­ing how rare ob­jects make their way to the col­lec­tions and how the in­sti­tu­tion has changed over the years. Us­ing th­ese sto­ries, she com­bined pho­to­graphs of arte­facts and hid­den cor­ners of the mu­seum with pa­per, wood, glass and gold leaf to cre­ate the col­lages.
