Bezalel 2018: Selected Works from the Graduates Exhibition
Andriy Malakhovskyy, Objects, like people, migrate
, 2018, Graduated 2019, Photography
years ago to study photography at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design. This turn completely changed my life, and after 2 years my wife and daughter joined me. We brought with us a lot of objects from Ukraine. And now I introduce all of them on the wall.
Objects that migrants carry can be large or small, common or uncommon, mass- produced or intensely personal. They can tell of families lost and families found. They can speak of a heritage and an identity. They can be a link to the past as well as a bridge to the future. Some migrants flee conflict. Other migrants seek opportunity. All carry something with them.
Objects help us to create a history of our experiences and they contribute to a psychological history of meaning, of communication - as you have all just participated in - as well as actions, memory and of course emotions. They are not static, they can change over time, and be used in different ways and for different means.
