From darkness to light - Turning the forgotten into Living art.
Guli and Avi Levy present a joint journey over the years, which collects forgotten memories and echoes from the past, and serves as an inspiration for new works.
In this journey, worn walls, historical objects, scattered stones, abandoned spaces of past lives, and lost personal memories, filled with the spirit of people of the past and obsolete items, serve as raw materials for new creations.
The products of this process are presented in an exhibition that unearths forgotten history through paintings using dark-to-light technique; handmade crystal necklaces; and photographs of abandoned buildings and the memories they left behind.
These works give these memories a new life and infuse the beauty and value that exist in the "abandoned".
