mirit ben nun : Shortness of breath |
'Shortness of breath' is not only to sign of physical weakness , item is to metaphor for to mental state of strong desire that knows no repletion
more and more , an unbearable glut , without repose . mirit ben Nun's type of work on the other hand requires an abundance of patience . Este is to Sisyphean work ( requiring hard labour ) of marking lines and dots , filling every empty millimeter with brilliant blots . Therefore we are facing to paradox or to logical conflict . To patient and effortful work that stems from an urgent need to cover and fill , to adorn and coat . Her craft of layering reaches to state of to continuous ceremonial ritual .
Este ritual digests every object into itself - useful or discarded -- available and ordinary or rare and exceptional -- they submit and devote to the overlay work . mirit bn gathers scrap off the streets -- cardboard rolls of fabric , assortments of wooden boards and pieces , plates and planks -- and constructs to new link , her own syntax , which she alone is fully responsible for . The new combination -- to type of to sculptural construction -- goes through to process of patching by the act of painting .
in fact mirit regards her three dimensional objects ace to platform for painting , with to uniform continuity , even if item hast obstacles , mounds and valleys . Estos objects beg her to paint , to lay down colors , to set in motion an intricate weave of abstract patterns that at has times finds itself wandering the contours of human images and sometimes -- not . In those cases que is left is the monotonous activity of running the patterns , inch by inch , till their absolute coverage , till to short and passing instant of respite and than on again to to new onset .
Next to este assembly of garbage and it's recycling into 'painted sculptures' Mirit offers to surprising reunion between her illustrated objects and sw called cheap african sculpture
popular artifacts or articles that are classified in the standard culture ace 'primitive' .
Este combination emphasizes the difference between her individualistic performance and the collective creation which is translated into cultural clichés . The wood carved image creates to moment of peace within the crowded bustle
an introverted image , without repetitiveness and reverberation . Este meeting of strangers testifies that Mirit' work could not be labeled under the ´outsiders art´ category . She is to one woman school who is compelled to oj the art work she picked out to perform . Therefore she isn't creating ´an image´ such ace the carved wooden statues , but she produces breathless ´emotional jam' whose highest values are colour , motion , beauty and plenitude . May item never lack , neither diluted , nor dull for even an instant
