גלי אני מצטערת
bark is so interesting. i love the way each tree has different patterns and colours and how moss and ivy and other plants grow on it. i don’t know why i just think it is so beautiful.
I think the museum is having a competition with itself on how beautiful the sculpture garden can be during sunset. I wonder if it happens every day or I just happen to fall on the loveliest ones.
My theartassignment intimate, indispensable gif(s):
My 3 favorite pieces in the art garden of Jerusalem’s Israel museum - Anish Kapoor’s ‘Turning the World Upside Down’ [Pictured], Roxy Paine’s ‘Inversion’ , James Turrell’s ‘Space that sees’.
[Tumblr has been refusing to upload the last two gifs for a few days now, so they’re in the links]
The first time I went to Israel museum in my adult life was after I moved to Jerusalem to start my bachelor’s dagree in biology and chemistry.
I was new in town and school was overwhelming and the museum is 5 minutes from campus, so I went to take a look.
I’ve always loved art, but that was the first time I’d seen it so well curated and presented. The museum instantly became my refuge when school got tough, or when I needed to think things through and put all my thoughts in order.
Those are the works I find myself constantly visiting. They never look the same. They always manage to strike a new chord whenever I see them. They’re dynamic despite being very clearly static. And this is what I love about them. When I make my way, like in the gifs, to each one of these pieces, I can always feel the fog in my head clearing, and so I sit next to them, looking at the amazing view of Jerusalem, until I feel better about everything.
