Shalekhet – Fallen Leaves
An Installation by Menashe Kadishman in Our Permanent Exhibition
Please note that the Eric F. Ross Gallery will be closed for refurbishment until and including Sunday, 10 December 2017. The installation Shalekhet (Fallen Leaves) by Menashe Kadishman will not be accessible to visitors during this time.
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.
