New God by Avner Sher was selected to be exhibited at Koresh 14 Gallery’s new exhibition, Barbara. The exhibition deals with the links between Barbie dolls and our conceptions of self, society and environment. Barbie replaced previous generations’ cloth dolls, often homemade, that accompanied a girl from infancy to adulthood. Today’s girls, citizens of super-industrialized society, learn from a young age to use and dispose. In an age of consumption and replacement objects quickly lose value. the body itself, like the doll, becomes an object to decorate, paint and alter through an ever expanding beauty and plastic surgery industry. focusing on Barbie allows a different discourse on liberation, discrimination, and issues of gender and feminine identity. Artistic research of the personal and social issues of femininity and gender will allow important and unusual artistic expression.this exhibition continues a line of conceptual thought and aims to create a new discourse on these loaded issues in our local art world.
