One may not naturally associate bicycle chains with maternity or delivering a baby but, somehow, it works.

Artists not only spread their wares across a broad range of disciplines, they also employ various kinds of media to portray their creative bent. Some painters stick to oils, others prefer watercolors or gouache (a method of painting with opaque watercolors) or even ink, while sculptors might go for traditional material, such as clay or stone, wood or even wax. Nirit Levav-Packer prefers a very different medium.

That much is clear from the moment you enter the generously proportioned Machsan 2 display space at Jaffa Port and espy the first works in Levav-Packer’s “From Within” exhibition, curated by Galit Semel, which runs until October 18.
