INANNA - 12.01.2012 - 09.02.2012 at Antea, a Space for Women's Art at Kol Ha-Isha in Jerusalem

“INANNA – SHE DESTROYS WHAT IS FORBIDDEN TO DESTROY.
SHE CREATES WHAT IS FORBIDDEN TO CREATE”

Inanna is the ancient Sumerian Goddess worshipped in the Middle East, three thousand years ago , before the onset of patriarchal religions. Inanna was a Queen-Goddess who united in herself the three worlds – Sky, Earth and Underground. Her being precedes the split started by the Jewish religion in the Feminine archetype, into the Shekinah(spirit above), Eve (woman on earth) and Lilith (demoness below). Inanna’s stories and character bring a message of union and wholeness for individual women and men and global communities.

Painting by Lilliana KleinerLiliana Kleiner presents work born out of her understanding and experiences of Inanna and female mythology. She hopes to inspire the viewers to dream of a new Feminine Wholeness: the unity of female sensuality, womanly strength and feminine spirituality; the birth of wholeness in all of us, women, men and societies. The artist’s work can be seen at her site: www.lilianakleiner.com
