Sheila Hicks refers to her work Comets Sculpture, one of the three works featured in her exhibition Migdalor at Magasin III Jaffa, as “Bundles of Memory.”

In a conversation with Yaara Shehori we will discuss memories in literature and art and the materials they are made of.

Yaara Shehori is an Israeli novelist and book editor, Phd in Israeli literature. She has published three books and won various prizes, the last of which is the Bernstein Prize for a Hebrew novel (2017), for her novel Aquarium. In February, her fourth book will be published.

Sheila Hicks is an internationally-renowned artist of American origin, based in Paris since the mid-1960s with a career spanning six decades. She is known for her groundbreaking use in textiles and paint, and her artistic work has redefined the boundaries of the medium.

Migdalor by Sheila Hicks, is the second exhibition in Magasin III Jaffa, permanent satellite space of Magasin III Museum for Contemporary Art from Stockholm, Sweden. The solo exhibition features Hicks’ distinctive installation of vibrantly colored sculptures in materials ranging from the traditional and natural, such as linen silk and cotton, to newly researched industrial materials based on advanced technologies.
