The exhibition is titled Ilana which was inspired by the artist’s Jewish name. In Hebrew Ilana means ‘tree’, but should not be interpreted literally; instead it refers to the ‘idea’ of a tree, or a poetic concept, the tree of life. This exhibition shows how the artist has grown on her travels from Scandinavia to Israel, on a search to understand her heritage. It focuses on the different understandings and misunderstandings of the real world.
The artist chose to showcase the images in a photographic motif from all over the world, including the Middle East, Africa and Norway and many more. Themes range from Muslim family life in Egypt, a student from a small village in Ghana, drag queen performers in Israel to even the artist’s own childhood home in Norway. In contrast to these, there will be other additional photos that are greatly manipulated of the real world.
