|+|Abdominal Pain \ Liora Belford

In the installation “Fallow Deer”, a stuffed fallow deer is seen lying on a red vintage sofa with his buttocks facing up, reminiscent of the sexual position of conqueror-conquered. Yudkovik emptied out the deer’s stomach and filled it with seeds using a mixed technique: an almost surgical procedure of opening the stuffed animal’s stomach, inserting the objects and then sewing up the abdomen.

The installation was first shown as part of the group exhibition “Abdominal Pain”, works from the ST-ART Collection (Serge Tirosh), which dealt with notions of strength and compassion. The works in the exhibition present moments of natural dissonance, everyday injustices that the erosion they are succumbed to and that endows them with moral ratification prevents the gaze from noticing their existence.
