Hello Tal and welcome to our Resort.
What did you choose to present?

This is a set I started working on a few month ago. I found myself more and more interested in the leftovers of what’s familiar. In memories that might took place or I might have imagined.
Forgetting is heartbreaking for me, and with drawing these crumbs of memory I try , maybe, to accelerate their lost, so I will be already prepared to confront it.

Tell us about a significant moment in your career/work/life

A few years ago I went with a friend in Jaffa. It was the middle of the night, and he felt like eating a bake. I entered with him to the bakery. Everything looked tired and wet. He grabbed himself a bunch of croissants but I couldn’t find anything, not even a drink. Then he told me “Tal, you don’t have to, you know”. He meant the bakes but for me it somehow came like an existential comfort. I suddenly felt I don’t have to do anything in the world that I don’t want to. And that I’m free. And I recalls it since, many times.

What is the best place we shouldn’t miss when visiting your town?

I love going to parks at night and look at the lightning.
