The Song of Songs, one of the 5 scrolls in the Bible, are love poems thought to be written by King Solomon, and taken as an allegory for the relationship between the creator and his beloved creation. The process of creating the images for this sacred ancient book has been an amazing journey across continents, cultures, languages and materials.
Liliana Kleiner: ‘I would like to share with you my experiences of living and creating in my three homes – north America, latin America and Israel – and talk to you, in English, Spanish and Hebrew, about a universal language, tongue of art and soul, the language of creation. Art and images have no borders, no passports, no limitations of ego or collective rules, and I believe their power and beauty lies in their freedom.’
