Ronit Porat: Sophiornithidae

While exploring the Museum Van Loon’s archives, Israeli artist Ronit Porat uncovered photos and records of reams of exotic birds. Using these fascinating birds of wisdom - many of which were killed use as decoration on clothing and accessories - as the basis for her exhibition, Ronit uses photos and installations to question the idea of private and public archives, and explore whether the historical and personal narrative can exist in parallel. See it at Museum Van Loon from 23 November 2017 to 8 January 2018.
