Joseph Sasson

43 x 69 x 23 cm

Polished aluminium

This lamp is self-referential, in the positive sense of a person who accepts the obligations associated with his name, in memory of those who are no longer here. It bears the name of the artist in Hebrew, as a symbol created using aluminium, a material that reflects the light this holiday celebrates. The eight lights at the top of the metal structure are blue; the shamash, the ninth light, is clearly recognisable at the far right and higher than the others.
