Preying the Predator – Land of Israel Museum Tel Aviv (1997)
Shlomit Averbuch created a series of organic sculptures out of wax saturated with pigment, aluminum wires, cotton threads and synthetic hair.
Each sculpture represents a version of the relationship between a human form and a winged form devouring each other. The struggling pair creates a new 'predator-prey' hybrid creature in perpetual conflict with itself. The struggle is between complementary contrasts – male-female, defilement-purification, sterility-fertility, independence-reliance.
