Earth without heroes – I erase you in the darkness in the corners of my mind (top), Criminal in your prayer (bottom)

Earth without heroes consists of a series of eight drawings that I created during transitioning from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv in 2008/2009. The series is based on a 100-part cycle, Playtime, that was created over three months in my studio on Mount Scopus in Jerusalem. The work was made at the time of the Gaza war in winter of 2008, when I had just started my Master’s year in Bezalel. During the war I withdrew into myself, both locally and spiritually.

My studio allowed me the much-needed space to bring all thoughts that rushed through me directly to paper. The format of my feelings ranged between A3 and A4. Every day I chose a new theme; from architecture to movement, sports, love or fear. My protagonists and I joined forces and they followed me to Tel Aviv for the next two years. Earth without heroes was the last cycle of this kind. It was exhibited at Barbour Gallery in Jerusalem and remained in Tel Aviv for seven years after I moved back to Berlin. Five of these eight works have so far found their place in private collections with the silent condition of being able to stay here in Israel.
