The starting point for How to Disappear Completely is a mid-fifteenth-century painting displayed in the Museum’s European Art gallery – The Death of Lucretia – depicting a story of rape, testimony, suicide, and vengeance. According to the legend, Lucretia’s rape by the son of Rome’s tyrannical ruler led to a rebellion against the Roman monarchy, laying the foundation for the birth of the Roman republic. Oren Eliav, one of today’s foremost young Israeli artists, took this small painting as the basis for twenty large-scale, at times monumental, canvases that propose a wide array of perspectives on the story of Lucretia, enabling us to consider the scene from many points of view and freeing us from a single interpretation. Exhibition curator Aya Miron offers an insightful analysis of his work and the rich album beautifully conveys how Eliav’s deconstruction of the original painting amplifies its inherent sense of fear, threat, and disorientation.
