Combining color, the world of objects, and the word in his works, Haim Sokol strives for a poetic understanding of modernity. “I try to view the issue of identity, especially acquired identity, in the context of what I call 'poetic ethnogenesis.' Does a chair, a man's coat, or a sock change its properties when painted pink? Do any cultural skills acquired as a result of migration, for example, language, become part of our body, DNA, which is inherited? So is migration a kind of mutation? Transformation? ", — Haim Sokol.
