Sounds of the River 

Tikotin Museum 

Haifa, 2023

Curator: Etty Glass Gissis

In the "Sounds of the River" exhibition space is a selection of works by the textile artist Yael Harnik. Harnik creates in a traditional Japanese technique, but in her creative way, her works herald innovation and an invitation to a contemporary look at tradition. Similar to Japanese ink paintings, Harnik creates a rich world of shades by using only one color, indigo. Unusually, she dyes fabrics that challenge the technique and replaces the commonly-used cotton fabric with silk and velvet. The encounter with Harnik's works brings not only aesthetic pleasure, from which the sounds of the river emanate, the folds are waves and the fabric is water.
