Bezalel 2019: Selected Works from the Graduates Exhibition
Hadar Gardin, Limited Tradition – Judaica Artefacts Version Update
, 2019, Graduated 2019, Industrial Design


Advisor: Prof. de Lange Chanan
What makes objects “sacred”? What infuses the material with spirit, emotion, or a story?
An attempt to create contemporary religious aesthetics for Shabbat artefacts, while identifying the movements, the gestures, and the essence of rituals. To take the silverware out of the display cabinet, to strip them off of solemnity and excess, of the awe and of the overpowering presence. The designation of the object in the ritual is what sanctifies it. The artefacts do not have to be fancy or expensive, they can be modest, simple and inobtrusive, close and accessible to the traditional person, to everyday life, to the home, and to the wallet.
