Antwerp / Belgium
Born in 1977
I was born, spent my childhood & youth in Israel. A travel in my 20 th year, to the center & south part of the American continent lead to the decision to study the craft of jewellery to fulfil a wish not to arrive again to a place with ‘bare-hands’. Jewellery was the chosen discipline to gain ‘making- hands’, partly since as an object, jewellery is desired everywhere.
The 1 st educational engagement was to enrol to “Shenkar Collage of Engineering & Design” in Tel-Aviv, Israel, for a BA in jewellery design. Which was completed in 2006 with participation in the “Talente” exhibition in Munich, Germany. It was followed by a couple of years of enquiries & contemplations how to broaden my views concerning my chosen discipline. To satisfy this desire The Netherlands was picked as the next destination. This chapter ended with the decision to continue to a 2 nd educational commitment in Idar-Oberstein, Trier University for Science & Applied Art, Germany. It was signed with a MFA in jewellery & (gem) stone. Which was accompanied by a research about the matter of gift. That underlined the complexity of the triangular relationship between the giver-gift-receiver & consequently led to a growing interest in the subject of person-object relationships. & was closed by the Marzee graduation prize for 2015.
Currently I am living, working & collaborating from within & around Antwerp, Belgium.
