'Drawings from a Polygraph'- Five Comments about Five Legs -  Shoham Smith

------------------------------------

dBook by Merav Shinn Ben-Alon 

Drawings 2013-2014

 

The book’s name dBook stands for drawing book/dairy book/daily book, while in Hebrew it refers to ‘dybbuk’ (a malicious possessing spirit in Jewish folklore), an obsession.

This booklet, measuring 15x10 cm, is of the same size as my sketchbooks, with which I work on a daily basis. It includes 50 selected drawings printed on three types of paper, one of which is half-transparent pergament paper thus allowing the viewer to play with the drawings’ arrangement. In this manner, the book preserves the eclectic contemplative nature of the original sketchbooks, which do not generate a homogenous narrative, but rather a mundane, diary-like, experience of life.
