In her first solo exhibition at the Israel Museum, Zoya Cherkassky – who was born in Ukraine and came to Israel as a teenager with the massive wave of Russian immigration in the 1990s – focuses on the frictions between the new immigrants and Israeli society. Her works, at once realistic and grotesque, seemingly naïve yet sharp and poignant, do not restrict themselves to the realm of criticism but offer profound insights into the universal context of immigration – together with whatever comfort we can find in her special brand of humor, the whiff of salami and pickled cabbage, and that wonderful paradox which is the essence of Israeliness. The versatile, trilingual catalogue features essays by Senior Curator of Israeli Art Amitai Mendelsohn, sociologists Edna Lomsky-Feder and Tamar Rapoport, Chief Curator of Fine Arts Mira Lapidot, and artist and art critic Avdey Ter-Oganyan, as well as two short stories by Yana Pevzner, also a veteran immigrant from the former Soviet Union, and an album of the works – mostly oils but also drawings and sketches – many of which are illuminated by curatorial texts.
