A Visit to Ayala Serfaty’s Studio (Video)

“… I visited the atelier of Ayala Sarfaty in the Jaffa district of Tel Aviv. I try to pay a trip to her remarkable working space every time I visit the White City. I met Ayala five years ago when she had a solo show at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, an installation called SOMA. I remember being moved by the illuminated objects that looked like layers of white clouds, as light as drifting feathers, floating above ground. It suggested an underwater world of ultimate mystery and beauty. This type of museum installation was like a fantasy; it absorbed me for hours and I wanted to visit over and over again. It was an unforgettable experience. I remember thinking of the Zen Gardens of Kyoto that allow the visitor to meditate and inhale the spiritual entity of nature. I was delighted to find out that the Zen Gardens of Kyoto are one of Ayala’s major sources of inspiration. …”
