Shalekhet – Fallen Leaves

An Installation by Menashe Kadishman

Please note: Menashe Kadishman’s art installation is not accessible to visitors between 24 and 28 June 2024.

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.
