Alina Szapocznikow: Body Traces
TEL AVIV  •  Tel Aviv Museum of Art.  •  Ongoing
This show presents the work of Polish artist Alina Szapocznikow (1926 - 1973). Although her artistic activity was short-lived —in the final years of modernism and on the verge of new trends in art —it yielded a cycle of radical, reflexive works which embody the artist's traumatic biography —life in concentration camps and terminal illness— while resonating with Surrealist aesthetics, Nouveau Réalisme, and Pop art. The thematic and conceptual axis at the core of her art is the human body —with its sensations, passions, and transience— as motivator, sensor, and witness; as an existential experience in the cycle of life and death.
