“A deed without a name” – Ruthi Helbitz Cohen
LOCATION: Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, Egnatia 154, Thessaloniki, Greece
Besides Ruthi’s solo exhibition “A Deed Without A Name” at the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art the artist is also this year’s “Inspire Project” guest artist. The project is based on the atmosphere that Helbitz Cohen’s work induces: between witchcraft and intimism, myth and psychoanalysis. The artistic work will be approached as the space that redefines the dimensions of time and place. Symbols and images, layers of time in space, will serve as a tool to decode “a deed without a name”, as the witches in Macbeth respond when asked what it is that they do. Past elements, whether biographical, historical, collective, ideological or material, assert themselves in the present tense and will be the basis of an improvisation on mythical thought.
