Scleroderma was exhibited at the group exhibition Grandfather Paradox. Chelouche Gallery, 2010. Curator: Avi Lubin From the curator’s text: In the center of Tomer Sapir’s work Scleroderma (2008-2010) stands the image of a sand castle. Scleroderma is a disease whose symptoms can be induration and contraction, a kind of petrification of the biological tissue. The disease can be local, or it can slowly expand throughout the body. The building process of familiar sand castles is intuitive and playful and the outcome always exists under the threat of destruction and devastation.

From the curator’s text:

In the center of Tomer Sapir’s work Scleroderma (2008-2010) stands the image of a sand castle. Scleroderma is a disease whose symptoms can be induration and contraction, a kind of petrification of the biological tissue. The disease can be local, or it can slowly expand throughout the body. The building process of familiar sand castles is intuitive and playful and the outcome always exists under the threat of destruction and devastation. When concrete is used for building castles, the process is decelerated and is made in multiple stages. Each stage comprises values of randomness and fortuity, but the whole succession of the common building process is severed. The concrete petrifies the iconic sand castle, pretends to freeze the time from moving and fails when it creates an almost taxidermic simile.
