MARIA POMIANSKY

 

Maria Pomiansky
"Nose"

The artist, who only came to live in Israel a few years ago, investigates the social sub-formation of Russian immigrants. She photographs her Russian friends and acquaintances wearing toy masks of pigs' snouts. In this way, she addresses the (self-chosen) outsider status of Russian Jews in Israel, which is manifested, for example, in the insistence on the consumption of pork with reference to Russian tradition.
