תֹהוּ וָבֹהוּ הוא ביטוי עברי מקראי הנמצא בנרטיב הבריאה, המופיע בתחילת ספר בראשית כחלק מסיפור מקראי המתאר כיצד נברא העולם על ידי האלוהים הכאוס טומן בחובו פחד שאם מתבוננים בו מקרוב – מוביל לתשוקה
“And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” (Book of Genesis, 1, 2) ToHu VaBoHu (Chaos), is a biblical Hebrew expression found in the creation narrative, which appears at the beginning of Genesis as part of a biblical story that describes how the world was created by God. In chaos there is a hidden fear, being observed carefuly – found as a desire. (me)
Made from Sotheby’s and Christie’s art catalogs. I made this work during Covid-19 (Corona) quarantine days. The work is coated with crystal material that protects against moisture and (UV) radiation damage. The work is glued to the back of a high density double sided grey cardboard and ready to be hung. This work can be hung in four different directions. The work can be framed but I recommend not to, as it is durable and more impressive as is.
