November  2020    Portraits | Art and Museum interview 2020  

A wonderful personal interview by Monique Bakker from Art and Musuem. What it was like for me to emigrate with my family from the Netherlands to Israel. How in my artworks, I use paper to give shape to the displaced feeling, the uprootedness that I experienced while living in a completely different culture. A country where there can be war and at the same time people are enjoying the beach. Where I move in between people with whom I have not shared a childhood. What I’d lost, but most of all, what I  found there?
