BODY = THE NEW RELIGION
Between the years 2015-2019 I presented the artwork "BODY = The New Religion".
This is a methodological research about the Body and its relations to the Self. Without any boundaries between me and my art, my own body was used as a platform for conducting artistic experiments. I totally identified with my Body as a Religion. After a long process of individuation, I have finally integrated into being One with my real Self. Since then, I have applied a new title, “Shlema”, to sign my artwork.
Shlema in Hebrew means “whole”. Within the framework of my art, I have become an independent Body - whole in itself.
This concert was performed for the first time at the opening of the exhibition BODY = The New Religion.
Seven Minutes in Heaven

BODY = The New Religion's Headquarters. The installation features 60 meters of Tomato-Leather, props from "Holy Body Parts", a 7-minute projection of the drawing series "A Grid Points to a Body" and a 7-minute audio recording of a confession I made just before the exhibition opened.
