Shahar Sivan

Under Erasure/ Painting, Drawing, Cutting 

"...What remains under the erasure, the disintegration of the figure, looks to me like those medieval parchment scrolls: people used to rub off the writing on the scroll, so that the new text could be inscribed on the same parchment. This is how the palimpsest was made, a multi-layered text, where which which was erased remained present, assimilated into the top layer, its materiality reaffirmed. What remained was the in-between, the space where things really happen, which is so elusive and ungraspable. Perhaps this is what Merleau-Ponty had in mind when he tried to find a new language to make art speak. But Shahar is very careful with words, and he is right: we have to be gentle when working with dangerous things.." Prof. Daphna Erdinast-Vulcan
