Reliquiae is a general term for body parts or personal items left behind by saints.
In certain religions, these relics, believed to have supernatural powers, are carefully preserved and often displayed. The exhibition comprises a set of objects moving on a plastic-physical-spiritual axis, which were developed through personal research into physical-plastic representations of the sublime. Awareness of potential failure is the motivation for attempting to catch a missing presence and to give form to a metaphysical essence that is without name or substance, which cannot be seen or heard, only felt.
Carmel Bar’s exhibition, produced as part of the project ‘Dance Arena 2018’, in collaboration with Hansen Jerusalem.
