Assemblage, various materials


Lilith was the first woman. Created out of the same soil as Adam, she refused to be subservient to him and fled to the Red Sea. The Red Sea serves as the backdrop of this assembled portrait, the place where she started to dissolve and transform. Portrait of Lilith is inspired by the uneasiness and non-state of being fragmented. It is made of a collection of objects that refer to Lilith’s story and her characteristics. It is an invitation to meet Lilith dynamically – not as a static and essentialist woman, but as a floating identity.
