The Decorative Arts of Today by Tamara Efrat
The project will be shown in the coming BAUNOW | New Perspectives Exhibition, Celebrating 100 Years of Bauhaus
Tamara, designer and graduate of the Master’s Program in Bezalel Academy, Jerusalem in the design and technology track, created The Decorative Arts of Today project – series of works reexamining the sisyphic side of traditional women’s craft and its relevance in today’s global/digital reality, where craft, handmade goods, locality and environmental sensitivity are in high demand.
The project follows the works of the famous weavers of the Bauhaus while analysing and reconstructing their methodologies and techniques, studying, coding and translating the patterns, rhythms, and compositions that identify each weaver into new, digitally based morphologies – interpretations of contemporary crafts of today.
This project was produced with the support of the Israel Lottery Council For Culture & Art.
The BAUNOW project is a collaboration between the Master’s Program in Bezalel Academy, Jerusalem & Anhalt University of Applied Sciences, Dessau and is supported by a grant from the The German-Israeli Future Forum and Hansen House, Jerusalem.
The opening event of the exhibition will take place on 15-08 19:00 at The Hansen House in Jerusalem.
