Galit Allouche is pulling the threads. From one point to another, she comes andgoes.
Sometimes we hear the rattling of the glue gun.
Under the effect of the heat,the filament lies in lacey patterns on clay molds.
On the day in question, on the corner of a table which she uses as a workshop,Galit Allouche is working on the creation of hands.
Nine have already been madethis morning. Assembled by the dozen, these hands made of lace glue, formstrange bushes, translucent corals.
The most striking work - also the largest and most detailed - is composed of Madame or Mademoiselle?
and of its complementary portrait Mademoiselle or Madame?
It is a large reef of outstretched hands. A tight bouquet of hands withcolored veins, surrounded by a circle of hands, white as a wedding dress.
So, is it Madame or Mademoiselle?
Galit can’t see why there should be two words to address a woman.
So she composed her response by separating the two very complementary sculptures which would normally only be one.The artist insists on expressing her views.
Almost all her works are titled. The titlereveals the hidden meaning, the strong opinion or the secret emotion that led totheir creation.
We learn with Neuf Moi Seulement that “vomiting” can be very similar to “happiness”.
We can contemplate sexual appetite mixed with love in To Serve You.
One wondershow the strip tease in Love Me Love Me Not will end....
In her previous series of clouds, Galit Allouche was speaking to our emotions.
Aerial shapes floating on a wall, chubby, light and gentle.
Nothing more poetic!
The latest creations raise questions; and the titles lead you to reflect and react.Between these two poles, the artist comes and goes.
She weaves the threads between her imagination and her reality.
The result is her works that have found the balance between emotional andcerebral.
