“Natural Treasures” Exhibition & Tours at the Rishon LeZion Municipal Gallery

The Rishon LeZion Municipal Gallery presents "Natural Treasures: Representation of Nature in Textiles", its Spring exhibition, curated by Efi Gen, Vera Pilpul, and Keren Weisshaus. The exhibit features work by 18 different artists.

“In the beginning everything was made of textile. People lived in tents, babies were born in textiles, people were buried in textiles, textile was an inseparable part of our lives. Now, it
Now, it is reintegrating and I believe that it is the material of the twenty-first century and that architecture, transportation, bridges, health, art, design and fashion – everything will be made of textiles of all kinds.”

Over the past two years, we have experienced a dissonance between shutting in and stepping out of lockdowns, between having to wrap ourselves, defending ourselves against the threat of an epidemic, and longing for a soft and comforting touch, an exodus to nature. Textile is essentially a material that envelops and protects the body, creating a buffer between it and the environment. As such, it is a wonderful agent for representing the longings and dilemmas we have all been facing. The textile, for its colors, patterns and textures, simulates and corresponds with nature and its many representations; The flora and fauna, animal skin, vegetation, natural landscapes – all serve as a basis for inspiration, imitation, model creation, decoration, camouflage and also as a source of power and great influence for creators, designers and artists."
