Shalekhet – Fallen Leaves
An Installation by Menashe Kadishman in the Permanent Exhibition
Please note: Menashe Kadisman’s art installation is not accessible to visitors on 24 February and between 6 and 30 March 2017.
The installation Shalekhet (Fallen Leaves) by Menashe Kadishman can be found in the Memory Void, one of the symbolic spaces on the ground level of the Libeskind building. The floor of the void is covered by more than ten thousand faces with open mouths, cut from heavy round iron plates.
The installation is a gift from Dieter and Si Rosenkranz. Menashe Kadishman’s sculptures stir painful memories of the victims of war.
