YOSTER at XIII Florence Biennale
'Crown of Sand'
I was born and raised in Be’er-Sheva, at the ‘30th parallel north’ and part of the main worldwide desert trip.
The desert- its harsh conditions, abstract landscapes and raw materials have been my childhood landscape and my source of inspiration.
I am in constant search of forms whose essence contains both spirit and materialism, wind and stone.I created a crown for the mythological Phoenix, in contrast to western mythology, as a female bird.
‘Crown of Sand’ is a three-dimensional crown within a ring that brings together life and movement. It is a blend of warmth and coolness, silver and gold.
“I know from within the life cycle of the Phoenix. I have risen as a woman and a sculptor from my own ruins, losing touch of solid ground just to feel the energy of life erupting and taking me to new identities.”
