Buba

While I am already back home, my doll who is now became part of my art work -"Buba", is yet in Belgium.
She is sitting there, covered by blanket, on a shelf of a dressing room, in front of her at the other side of the cell there is a photo portrait of her, and some of her garments hanged on the hooks.
The word "Buba" mean - a doll and a puppet in Hebrew, there is only one word to describe both of them.
This word is also being used for describing something small and cute, human or objects. Well behavior, well functioning, disciplined and good looking are some of it's associations too.
It is a common nickname for little girls, but with the same meaning it is also a nickname for grown up women as compliment or teasing.
"Buba" was part of a group exhibition-"Suddenly Last Summer" taking place in an old children medical center which is going to be demolished at the end of this summer, it was organised by the Belgian art organisation-"art 27".
