“Tikkun” (Repair) | Aviva Shemer

Nella and Leon Benoziyo Building for Biological Sciences
 & 
Raoul and Graziella de Picciotto Building for Scientific and Technical Support 2nd floor

Open weekdays: Sunday to Thursday, 09:00 – 15:00

The series of works "Tikkun" (Repair), presented in this exhibition, is part of the same effort as “Tikkun Olam.” On the one hand, it represents a change in the artist's perception, a shift from distress and suffering to positive thinking and joy. But, equally important, it also allows the observers (almost urging them) to soar to a unique point where they, themselves, can embrace the darkness, then part ways – and grow toward the light.
