A retrospective exhibit of the works of Israeli artist Absalon is set to open in February at Tel Aviv's Helena Rubinstein Pavilion.
The exhibit, marking 20 years since the artist's death at 29, is a version of the solo exhibition held about two years ago at Berlin's KW Institute for Contemporary Art.
The institute's curator, Susanne Pfeffer, called Absalon "one of the important artists of the 21st century."
The artist, whose real name was Meir Eshel, adopted the pseudonym Absalon when he moved to Paris in the late 1980s.
The exhibit, which was also shown in Rotterdam's Boijmans Van Beuningen art museum, will include installations, sculptures, models and preparatory sketches, as well as video works borrowed from museums and private collections around the world.
Absalon's most important work is his six Cellules - living quarters based on the dimensions of his body, which he designed for six cities: Paris, Frankfurt, Zurich, New York, Tokyo and Tel Aviv. He intended to live in these cities, he said.
