World-renowned artist constructs sculpture live for audiences.
Saturday, March 28 –
Zemer Peled was born and raised in Kibbutz, Israel. She studied art at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, receiving her bachelor’s degree, and at Royal College of Art, where she received her master’s. Her artwork has been featured in museums and galleries all over the world. Using thousands of ceramic shards, Peled constructs small and large sculptures and installations – both freestanding and hanging. On Saturday, March 28, she brings her artistry to Tulsa, allowing spectators the opportunity to see her construct Large Peony and Peeping Tom at the Tulsa Jewish Retirement and Health Center. You may have seen this five-foot-tall sculpture at 108 Contemporary last fall during the Twist and Turns exhibit. “This sculpture, like all of my work, is a deeply personal reflection of my perspective on the world,” the event’s press release quotes Peled saying. “I am thrilled that the sculpture will make its permanent home in Tulsa.” She’ll use porcelain shards, clay and metal to erect a beautiful sculpture. The shards’ sharp edges flow upward, sprouting flowers along the way and is reminiscent of an underwater reef. Take a step back and you won’t believe that porcelain shards make up this masterpiece. She will begin working at 8 a.m., and spectators are welcome to watch through the entire process. The event will take place at 2025 E. 71st St., Tulsa, OK 74136. Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind show. http://zemerpeled.com/
