Moloch

2018

Acetone, ax, blanket, garbage bag, kerchief, knife, pillow, sleeping pills, sock, and washtub

This work follows ten murder cases, which took place in Israel since 1948. All of them were committed by mothers on their own children.

All the articles which are part of this installation - household objects, accessible in almost every home -  were used by the mothers as a weapon, at an extreme moment of distress and despair.
