Shipwrecked Sleep



Shipwrecked Sleep (in Hebrew: שינה טרופה [sheina trufa] means "poor sleep" or "sleeping badly" but ספינה טרופה [sfina trufa] is a shipwreck) was first installed in the Jerusalem Artists' House in 1994, then in the exhibition Meuzan at the Tel-Aviv Artists' House and at the Arad Art Museum, Arad (curators: Dvora Morag and Nehama Golan).


The installation consisted of 11 crudely made doll-house beds. Some were set on piles of broken glass in different corners, some precariously on tilted shelves. Some beds had sheets or blankets, others were bare.
