The Route of the Star: Celebrating Sixty Years of the State of Israel

The Exhibition "The Route of the Star" by Dina Givon marks Israel’s 60th anniversary. The subject is The Star of David – its meaning throughout the history of the Jewish people and the State of Israel. The exhibition focuses on the achievements of Israel as seen by an optimistic person who strongly believes in the future of Israel as the sole homeland of its people...

By Dina Givon (Mannheim)

The Star of David is the motto throughout the Exhibition, which is based on five elements: Collage technique - Acrylic paintings combined with documentary photos taken by the photographer Kalman Givon during the first years of the state of Israel. These photos both inspire creativity and serve as raw material for Dina; Mosaic as a symbol of the variety of the people's culture and origin in Israel.

The colors which are mainly Yellow, Blue with Green, interwoven with the Black and White photos: History of the Jewish people - from the Yellow star of the holocaust, to the Blue and White Star of David , Israel’s national flag; The unframed works intend to point out that our tasks in Israel are still unfinished. A part of each work is not concluded as a whole but breaks out as if beyond the boundaries of the frame, thus expressing fragments of a huge continuing process. In spite of the fact that Israel is facing difficult times, one should take pride at the past 60 years while thriving for a better future.

The exhibition will take place at The Science and Art Center, Eshkol-Pais, 52, Dafna Str. Kiryat Bialik. Opening Sunday, 27th April 2008 19:00 until 15th May 2008.
