THE TORAH (I)
– Love, Rivalry, and Murder, He Spoke
The siblings of Genesis provide quite some material for a holy text. This first book of the Torah is full of familiar and familial dramas; three of the storytelling tapestries take place in Exodus. The siblings’ relationships are woven in few and simple shapes. I have tried to portray the brothers’ and sisters’ emotions through body language, especially positions and movements of their hands. Hands can show temper, personalities, and attitudes. Unlike manmade tools, they are always available to connect or push away.
