A self-portrait is replicated on the stock section of the financial supplement of Haaretz newspaper. The masculine world is signified by the series of numbers indicating the rise and fall of the stock market, suggestive of men’s intensive preoccupation with the verticals of their anatomy. The young girl drawn in black on the columns of numbers hides her mouth/face with her hands in a movement of embarrassment, shock or shame. “The hands cover a smile that is about to escape, hide embarrassment, hold back tears, hold back laughter,” writes Yudkovik, while maintaining fundamental modes of reversal. “The women are in a position of voyeurism, confusion, amazement, wonder, shame, horniness”. Towards what? What do they see?

The columns of numbers and the lines of the graphs crowd their hands, fill their heads with pestering thoughts. The background of the stock exchange functions both as a symbolic space and as a graphic element. The drawing maintains the black-white duality, and only the red line running around suggests the blush that slowly spreads throughout the face.
