2015 – <em>One Day Passes and Another Day Comes</em>, Peter Jacob Maltz

Artist Peter Jacob Maltz (b.1973) walked some 85 miles from his home in the center of Israel to Jerusalem, collecting objects on the way. Upon his arrival, he cast the objects in plaster to form a wall that records his pilgrimage. His combination of the holy and the profane in this sculpture at the Israel Museum resonates with the text of Genesis 13:17, “Arise, walk about the land, its length and breadth,” and conveys the complexity and beauty of living in Israel.
