In Eden Auerbach Ofrat’s video trilogy, the artist-priestess completes a nocturnal voyage to the place where the moon surrenders to the sun. She constructs a flying machine from skeletons of bulls (symbols of masculine aggression). When their ribs turn into mechanical wings, thousands of bees (messengers of the gods) are released. The sacrifice begets ascension of the spirit. 

Eden Auerbach Ofrat (b. 1979, Jerusalem; lives and works in Jerusalem) studied at Bezalel School of the Arts and Goldsmiths College. She has participated in numerous museum exhibitions, and her video and installation works are in the collection of the Israel Museum and private collections worldwide.
