This artist’s book is part of the project Aliyá, Yeridá and arises from the books that Rafael’s grandmother used to learn Hebrew in Israel. In them it is possible to find a series of words and phrases that seem unconnected but that manage to give an account of an abstract and personal Israel. A selection of these words are organized alphabetically, to which are assigned one or more images from family archives and those of the artist himself. These analogous archives, from different periods and territories, are juxtaposed giving rise to a new map, where the relationship between image and word opens up new meanings for the original archives.
