"After moving to NY from Israel more than a decade ago, I found myself reconstructing landscapes of my home country in my studio. It was as if the physical and geographical distance from Israel allowed for a psychological one to appear, through which memories of specific landscapes began to surface, and along with them, questions about how mechanisms of identity and belonging are formed through childhood imagery. One series I began to work on was Explosions, in which, using sculpture, painting and installation, I began to recreate different explosive imagery in my studio: these room-size dioramas are made using no visual reference other than my memory of them; they are made to be photographed and once the photo is taken, the set is taken apart. I use everyday, mundane materials like pillow stuffing, paper, mesh-wire, fabric and cellophane that allow me for a degree of immediacy and improvisation essential to the process. From vast explosions, to the smallest gravel stones, each element is made by hand. I am interested in the theatre-like quality of the image: the hanging wires, mesh, or staples are purposefully left, creating a disentangled, loose-around-the-edges image, sustained between real and fiction, between a personal and a collective gaze".
Shirley Wegner, 2013

Originally built by architect and designer George Aitchison for the Victorian artist Frederic, Lord Leighton, Leighton House is the only purpose-built studio-house open to the public in the United Kingdom.
Leighton acquired the plot in 1864, with work commencing the following year. The building underwent a number of extensions over the next 30 years, with the final addition completed in the months before Leighton's death in 1896. With the exception of closure for extensive refurbishment and restoration between september 2008 and april 2010, Leighton House has been open to the public since 1929. It remains one of the most remarkable buildings of the nineteenth century, containing a fascinating collection of paintings and sculptures by Leighton and his contemporaries.

Lost Time is an installation composed of strung beads that are reflected over a shallow body of still water. The weight of the suspended beads creates draped forms that when seen in the reflective surface of the water reveal a poised landscape of glistening structures.
Commissioned by, and for the champagne brand Perrier-Jouët, the piece is an exercise in minimalism and perception - a large scale installation composed from humble materials - water, beads and light, sculpted to create a dramatic ephemeral vista. For the piece is in fact a work of fiction - at once vivid, it is lost the moment the water is disturbed and the surface broken.
The piece was conceived in response to Perrier-Jouëts' rich Art Nouveau heritage and evocative of the immutable subterranean world of the cellars where, with time, the wine becomes Champagne. Originally created for the Design Miami art fair in 2012, in 2013 the piece was relocated as a permanent installation within the cellars at Perrier-Jouët in Epernay, France.
