UPROOTING is a sculpture of Tal Waldman. It has been exhibited at the VIA Gallery, and OFF-Paris Design Week as part of the Tal-Waldman Upcycling projects. UPROOTING follows the initial theme and methodology of the EMBROIDERED MEMORIES research. Beyond the immediate metaphor of “the man as a tree”, it touches on the phenomenon of uprooting, particularly relevant given the current issue of migration in Europe. The roots of the tree are exposed, uprooted and torn symbolically. UPROOTING revisits the traditional stained glass technique to create a three-dimensional work included in the wood. This is a second work of art in a larger research called 3D VITRAIL, initiated by Tal Waldman is committed to exploring the volume of stained glass in combination with other materials and techniques (blown glass, engraving on glass, metal work, inlay of wood). The first series named MOTHER-WOMAN combines a stained glass window and a sculpture.
