I am the escaped one, After I was born / They locked me up inside me / But I left. / My soul seeks me, Through hills and valley, I hope my soul / Never finds me. [Pessoa]


העולם לא נברא כדי שנהגה בו [...] אלא כדי שנתבונן בו / פרננדו פסואה

Marta Dineia Gamito's Address at the Opening of Jacob Porat's Exhibition - "Homage to Fernando Pessoa"

Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen, I am delighted to be here today to open Jacob Porats exhibition, Homage to Fernando Pessoa. Jacob Porats work, speaking for itself, is the expression of a true artistic vocation. In his words, his painting is inevitably inseminated by the two other arts in which he engages: Music and Literature. Jacob Porat studied music and violin and holds first degree in Hebrew Literature and Bible Studies and second degree in Comparative Literature, both from Tel-Aviv University. He studied Art, Painting and art printing in Avni institute in Tel Aviv. Today, Jacob Porat is a member of Israels Painters and Sculptors Association. The world of Fernando Pessoa, is the world of the infinite multiplications between the infinite self and alter egos. What I may say about this exhibition today is that an image is worth a thousand words. I would like to thank the Embassy of Portugal in Israel, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and of course Zehava Kalman and Michal Sadan for hosting this exhibition. Ladies and Gentleman, I now give you the artist, Jacob Porat. I take great pleasure in declaring this exhibition open.
