Home for me is the place where cultures collide; from Ethiopia where my parents were born, to Israel where I was born. My parents, intuitively and naturally, adorned our home with objects native to their homeland.
They used these objects according to the needs of the moment, deviating from their original function. The dispersal of these cultural objects from here and there were absorbed in my consciousness exposing me to aesthetic values with a personal, internal interest that cannot be attributed to neither here nor there.
Galerie Marzee was founded in 1978 as a gallery for contemporary jewelry, and has since become one of the principal promoters of contemporary jewelry and silverware. Since 1995 the gallery is housed in a former granary on Nijmegen’s waterfront, midway between the two bridges that cross the river here. With 850 square meters of exhibition space, Galerie Marzee is one of the largest galleries in the Netherlands, and the largest gallery for modern art jewelry in the world.
