Untitled, wine gum on iron & plaster

2004 - 2014
The ox sculpture by Michal Shamir was once a colorful, spectacular sculpture (created for the exhibition OverCraft, curator: Tami Katz-Freiman), covered with variegated, shiny gummy bears. For eight years it stood at the entrance of Ha’aretz’s offices on Shoken Street. There, it was exposed to the ravages of time which muddles its color and turned its flesh into a stale texture. Its life story and its current appearance serve as a reflection of our own lives on this side of the planet.
