Fruit Bowl no. 9 is a slim character that dwells on the table or the walls at our house. A single piece of wood, slightly curved, a reserved personality of few words, almost invisible, quietly listening to the chatter in the room. When the time comes, he dons a helmet of fruit and bursts triumphantly onto the stage. he too is undecided about calling himself a man or a woman, an adult or a child, natural or artificial; he presents himself as a hybrid, a lover of transformations and unusual combinations. Gilad designs another one of his object-characters connected to the series of bowls that are hard to locate in a precise context of the home. Simple yet restless forms, the series of bowls slithers from room to room, and in this ability to transform itself it reminds us of several objects from the historic Danese collection of the Fifties, Sixties and Seventies, which in the general catalogue were grouped with reference to their functions (flower vases, ashtrays, lamps…) or by type of use (dining, desk, entrance…), though they can often have more than one environmental purpose, precisely due to their ductile character as intimate objects, things you bring with you when you move to a new home, that always find an emotional analogue, though a different one, between your mood before and your mood right now.
