The First Edition of Sayako Aragaki’s book about Yaacov Agam is published in Jerusalem.
Sayako Aragaki’s book recalls in a concise and vibrant way the various stages of a work which, during the last half century, did not cease developing in many directions, while remaining faithful to the vision of the artist. Considered in all its amplitude, it should be noted that the work of Agam is of an exceptional creative richness…, in permanent dialogue with the world of man and his environment, so that we can better become aware of ourselves, widen our visual and cognitive faculties, and look further into our relation with the world… But the work of Agam is also there to provide us joy… and l do not doubt that it will open our eyes and senses to realities which, perhaps, we have a presentiment of, but are still unknown to us. –Marc Scheps, Former director of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and the Ludwig Museum, Cologne.
