Meydad Eliyahu’s solo exhibition,”Teivat Teudot” (box of documents in Hebrew) in Liza Gershuni gallery is a painting installation which creates a glimpse into an enigmatic universe.
The works in the exhibition were created by an intensive painting action which took place after the artist’s return from a journey to Cochin in south India.
like other works by the artist such as his site specific installations and artistic activity in public spaces, this exhibition recreates a forgotten memory. A memory that exists between the personal and the public and between the mainstream and the alternative.

The paintings in the installation are full of layers that combine as well as contradict each other like different states of mind.
Geometric colored forms, remains of expressive physical actions and images of faraway culture and contemporary local culture combine together into an independent new presence in Eliyhau’s paintings.
