For her third solo show in Sommer Contemporary Art, Michal Helfman presents an all-encompassing installation that combines sculpture, drawing and video.

Iron gates block the entrance to the gallery space, as if appropriated from a stage setting. The shape of the gates resembles that of a broken glass and also that of desert landscape – a cross-section of cracked mud, mountains and sun – all of which are recurring themes in Helfman's work of recent years. The only way to pass the gates is to walk through them and thus we are left trapped in Helfman's world, in a space full of happening.
