One of the main missions of the Man and the Living Museum is to create a connection between man, nature and animals.
This connection occurs in a strong, deep and natural way between us and our pets, who in many cases become part of the family.
In the exhibit ‘Family with a Tail’, we invited creatives, artists and residents of the city of Ramat Gan to display in the museum their connection with their pets through various artistic mediums.
Through the diverse personal stories and perspectives of each person or family, we can represent the meaning of pets in our world, ask questions about the differences between them and the wildlife in our lives and examine whether they represent our feelings towards nature or have long become part of the family and urban landscape.
This exhibition, for the first time, displays a significant community representation throughout the museum, and literally draws people inside. In this way we are able to rebuild the connection and relationship with the surrounding community and create relevant, up-to-date and interesting content which appeals to them.
The works were collected by the museum then underwent a process of curating and sorting. All of the works submitted will appear in the digital catalog of the exhibition on the website of the museum and the Safari, and selected pieces will be displayed in the exhibition itself.
The exhibit not only presents these works while expanding scientific knowledge, but also features a large-scale matching game for our visitors to pair pets with their owners (did you know that in many cases they are similar??), a game in which you can assemble your own imaginary pet, photo walls where you can lose yourself in an illustrated world, and an interactive exhibit where you can turn yourself into a dog or cat… See you at the museum!
