Solo Colores

by Arkadi Zaides & Itay Weiser

Isabel Cruellas creates delicate and fragile sculptures of plants, made from metal, whose creation involves an particularly laborious process. Isabel’s sculptures carry within them a testimony to the transformation of matter by the artist: the physically demanding process of working with a hard metal resulting in an outcome which is surprising in its soft and delicate qualities. Iris Erez is an experienced dancer and choreographer, with a unique artistic path which is characterized by an exploration of emotional inner worlds, brought forth into physical expression.

Solo Colores came into being out of a desire to create a dialogue between the two female artists, as well as creating a platform for different disciplines to converge. The piece is an exploration into the process of creation: the inner strength and emotional resources an artist needs to gather in order to create their art, the intense and demanding process which takes place prior to a piece’s completion, as well as about an artist’s need to publicly show their work to an audience.
The performance takes place in a white, colorless space, seemingly lifeless. among the metal plant sculptures, lies a human figure trying to relive past experiences, as if seeking to expose her inner world and confess.

Solo Colores has been awarded with the prestigious Kurt Jooss Prize 2010
