Just over half a century ago a certain Jackie DeShannon sang, simply and succinctly, “What the world needs now is love, sweet love.” It was a hit for her back in 1965, reaching No. 7 on the US Billboard charts, and topping the pop charts in Canada.

It is also a sentiment that comes across loud and clear in the “Please don’t leave me” exhibition currently in progress at the Office Gallery in downtown Tel Aviv. The exhibition notes talk of the emotional morass of interpersonal relations in this day and age. Emotions such as neediness and dependency, helplessness and weakness, and social concepts like separation- individuation also get a mention.
