Formica, 100x200x80 cm., 2016

Like a curling caterpillar wrapping itself into a cocoon, this piece of Formica spins on itself. As with that cocoon, the red color will burst out of it with all its glorious beauty when the time comes.

The Formica is normally used as colored lamination, but Avital works with it as raw material. She tears it with her hands, leaving the edges sharp and wounding. Rolling the material forces it to remain in continuous tension, and by doing so she creates the possibility of movement. It is a temporary position - the following move will add a new dimension to the artwork.
