About the Art Work

We thought about the stars, we thought about space, we thought about the dream of getting there and the efforts and power that a spacecraft needs to overcome gravity.

We also feel this way in the face of tradition, tradition is a huge force of gravity for girls and women who want to break through who want to learn, we do not always manage to break free, overcome the gravity of tradition and what surrounds us.

In this work we want to talk about those who are successful. On the revolution from the traditional era to the modern era, on the change.

Graduate of the School of Social Art and Culture, Sapir Academic College.
Bedouin artist, lives in Rahat.
I worked as a stills and video instructor for women in unfamiliar villages, and also as an art instructor in Rahat schools.
My art deals mostly with video art photography. Watching and videotaping minor occurrences in my environment, raindrops, walking of legs, eyes of a horse or pigeon flight. I love and am interested in zooming in on the lens and seeing new bodies and shapes that tell stories that are not the real size, in the video I can convey a lot of feelings and thoughts even without talking.

Graduate of the School of Social Art and Culture, Sapir Academic College.
Bedouin artist, lives in Rahat.
My works deal with female gender in Bedouin society. From the enormous pressure and weight that tradition and customs have on women. In my first performance I sat in the center of the college and let my lecturer close my mouth and force my hands and feet, I wanted to talk about the suffering of silence against the will of many women.
In my final project in the fourth year, I interviewed 7 women who tell their personal story on the subject of marital marriage (minors). The exhibition has won a scholarship for excellence and is currently on display at the Center for Contemporary Art at the Arad Community Center.

Ola, lives in Rahat and wor as a video artist,
I am drawn to a world of architecture and power that governs my world and my life. I show my place and my life in this powerful world in my works quietly and without words. Silence characterizes my personality: as an artist, as a woman, as a Muslim and as a Bedouin. I'm quiet.

Graduate of the School of Social Art and Culture, Sapir Academic College.
Bedouin artist, lives in Rahat.
My works speak not to hide the fact that I am a Bedouin woman, that we have severe restrictions on visibility and what is possible and impossible to say in our society and yet make art. When I was a little girl I used to spend a lot on the roof of the house between the clotheslines and the pigeons. I wanted to be a pigeon to see the whole world and go back to my house. Today when I go up to the roof I release thoughts and ideas and let them fly.

Yosra Abo Kaf

Yosra Abo Kaf

Graduate of the School of Social Art and Culture, Sapir Academic College.
I studied film at Sapir College for a few years and then I completed my degree in art and culture studies and the Mandel Leadership Program.
I worked as a stills and video photography coordinator for women and children, and for a human rights organization, for which I also managed a photo archive.
What attracts my art is themes and stories of women who live under and struggle with Bedouin culture and tradition. My first film was about the murder of women in Bedouin society.
These days I am working on a book of stills for Bedouin women's movements.
A still photography from the video art work "Silence" was displayed in a museum in Netherlands.
