About this work
A new book of illustrations and a solo exhibition by the artist Oren Fisher was launched in 2018 in the Red House, a cultural and art center in the Shapira neighborhood. The event was devoted entirely to cultural discourse and artistic creation about cancer.
Ahuva's story is a gift of friendship to her, just before the big surgery to remove "Goshon", the artist Oren Fisher gave his friend "Ahuva" a booklet of illustrations describing her journey from the point of view of her lovers.
Painful, direct and full of humor and love, Fisher's illustrations appear in his unique and familiar style, which allows readers to accompany and sense her story closely, as if they were her friends.
Inspired by the book, a large-sized installation was built in the gallery space, consisting of 8 canvas x 4 meters x 10 meters, sewn by a group of women aged 25-35, during the preliminary months of the exhibition.
During the meetings, conversations were held and shared concerns about the danger women face and fear of breast cancer.In the series of fabrics, each canvas depicts another struggle of her lover in dealing with the illness and the series of intensive treatments.
