Renowned Israeli conceptual artist Aliza Olmert uses egg shells as a metaphor for the fragility of existence, the obstacles to survival, and the imperative to sustain life.
Olmert creates an existential tikkun- the Jewish charge to heal and restore balance in the world, through the mending of the shattered pieces in her haunting works. As a daughter of survivors of the Holocaust and as an artist whose life has been shaped by Israel's struggle for security, Olmert's
works allude to the emotional toll of successive wars and ongoing terror, and manifest the ineffable strengths that have ensured survival.

Waldsee-1944 is an exhibition that commemorates the annihilation of
Hungarian Jewry during the summer of 1944, when Jews deported by the Nazis to their deaths at Auschwitz were required to write deceptive postcards from "Waldsee" to their families, reassuring them that all was well. Seventy international artists have created
their own postcards to commemorate the Hungarian Holocaust, each revealing different aspects of loss, suffering,
compassion, and memory.
