Shalekhet – Fallen Leaves

An Installation by Menashe Kadishman

Please note: Menashe Kadisman’s art installation is not accessible to visitors between 16 February 2020 and the opening of our new permanent exhibition in May 2020.

The Memory Void, one of the symbolic spaces on the ground level of the Libeskind building, includes the installation Shalekhet (Fallen Leaves) by Menashe Kadishman. More than 10,000 faces with open mouths, cut from heavy round iron plates, cover the floor of the ground floor void.

The installation is a gift from Dieter and Si Rosenkranz. Menashe Kadishman’s sculptures stir painful memories of the victims of war.
