Michal Helfman’s drawing Untitled (1 Dollar) (2015) functions as a door to a universe she has been in the process of ‘constructing’ through exhibitions and installations. In this universe the figure of the artist is freely associated with figures in society that are apparently disconnected from art. The figure of the smuggler, the currency-exchange store owner, and the terrorist become metaphors, channels to a deeper understanding of the current situation, both in art and in reality at large.
