During Covid, three international bookmakers, Lynne Avadenka (USA,) Mirta Kupferminc (Argentina) and myself, (Israel) separated by continents and time-zones, embarked on a two year creative journey. Based on the poem “At the Threshold of the Book” by Edmond Jabès, employing a shared repertoire of images developed through virtual communication, each artist worked alone in her studio. The resulting book addresses collective experiences of loss and isolation, and explores re-conceived notions of private, civic, and global space, refracted through the medium of books, and inspired by “four cubits,” the Jewish concept of personal space. The process resulted in a limited edition artist book which is now in the collections of the Library of Congress, Michigan State and The University of Michigan. We also produced a video (below) with the brilliant filmmaker and animator, Mariana Sosnowski. The project was curated by Emily Bilski and was presented at the 2021 Jerusalem Biennale.
