Skulls, ants and a girl from the gum. Ilana Goor Museum in Tel Aviv
• Skulls, ants and a girl from the gum. Ilana Goor Museum in Tel Aviv
Israel I began unconventionally ... landed on the El Al plane at Ben Gurion Airport, and preparing for the questions, "What you do in the passport stamps of Iran, Kuwait, the Emirates and Qatar?", I imagined that I would see the next five days only black and white Hasidim with Pace, faces with characteristic hooked nose, a beard and a pile in the back of his head, endless biblical landmarks, archaic but chaste women dressed in the dark ... Yes, and the first point of the visit program prepared by the Ministry of Tourism of Israel, was the item - " Visiting of museum"...
And then bang! Museum is not a drop of unbiblical, unchaste, without Pace and instrumentation, but with nudity Crazy exhibits pretty provocative installations, including on biblical themes. Well, yes, of course, Ilan Gur! Here we do a long time, that is to consider every thing possible and for long periods:.. Imagination at Ilana that yet!
To those who have never heard the name a little better represent the possible flight of her imagination, to name just a fact of her life, which served as the starting point of all creativity - a child suffering from dyslexia and Ilan all of us accustomed to her education was inaccessible. That girl was trying to playfully connect the various items, the most disparate, creating a sculptural miniatures, quite similar to the works of other artists. So there were chairs of fittings with animal skulls, chandeliers of strange objects and bottle opener in the form of members ... So, welcome to the shocking exhibition Ilana Gur in her house-museum in Tel Aviv.
Ilana Goor Museum is located in an old stone house in one of the best historical quarter of Jaffa. The artist bought it many years ago in a completely killed state has invested several million dollars in the internal reconstruction and ... stayed here. So the museum has become a house-museum.
One of the main ideas Ilana Gur - works of art should not be in a vacuum, in the dead space. Because only tactile contact with them when the viewer perceives a sculpture or an object uses in everyday life, will truly penetrate all these wonders. That is why most of the exhibits are some functional load and can be used in everyday life as a piece of furniture, interior, kitchen utensils.
For example, a chair with cow's head on the back.
Pets will be shocked. The disadvantage of such a chair in one - it will not put close to the wall: rested horn.
Ilana feeds some unfathomable passion for skulls of animals: they have it everywhere. The chairs at the tables, chandeliers and paintings ...
The greatest attention to the entrance of the museum attracts unusual installation, which occupies an entire room.
This interpretation of the Last Supper in a new way.
For it is worth a closer look.
You understand why ....
Skull, bones, huge ants and roaches crawling on the scraps ... Heat!
A bird is a pity ...
Most of the exhibits in the museum - works of Ilana. But there are also works of other painters and sculptors donated Ilan, as well as some interesting works of art from different cultures brought by the artist from his travels.

Something like this.
And this is the work of Yulia Sigal. They are devoted to the period of Jewish immigration to Israel.
The Jews then settled on the outskirts of Haifa, Pelekh and other cities here in these trailers, which called caravans.
You can imagine what they were living conditions ...
The figure of a girl in a natural growth, made of ... chewing gum.

I do not know why, but these works I liked most at the exhibition.
