The installation presents us with a different facet of the elder generation as their contribution, talent, and perseverance sheds a different, more optimistic and joyous light on the process of aging. Parents and grandparents tell us their story from a bird's eye view, and express in their art insights and a rich life experience; and the viewer? He is invited to walk among the birds, and choose the bird closest to his heart; the one symbolizing, the value that is most important for him, with which he will spread his own wings and take off to the sky.
"Joy Birds" follows in the footsteps of "Blossoming in Age", the first installation exhibited in the museum, in 2014. It constitutes another chapter in the series of artist Shlomit Hepher's social-art projects, which are founded on her idea that creativity knows no age or limit. "Joy Birds" presents us with further proof that all we need is the desire to fly on the wings of imagination.
