A Ladder Set Up on the Earth - Beita

A Ladder Set Up on the Earth Curator: Nogah Davidson

Artists: Yael Horn Danino & Noga Greenberg

The exhibition “A Ladder Set Up on the Earth” presents the work of photographers Yael Horn Danino & Noga Greenberg. Both photographers are religious women that engage in creative practice alongside their day to day life.

The name of the exhibition is taken from the story of Jacob’s Dream “And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven; and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it” (Genesis 28:10). In the biblical text, the ladder symbolizes the connection between sky and land, between the spiritual sphere and life on earth. When Jacob wakes from his dream he looks around and says, “How full of awe is this place!” and immediately sets on casting upon this horrible place the vision of wonder he saw in his dream, determined on bridging between the transcendent and the material world.
