‘Alphabet of Eve’ exhibit opens at Maryknoll eco sanctuary
by Erlyn Ruth Alcantara

“Alphabet of Eve,” an exhibition of photographs by Dorit Drori, opens at the Sanctuary Gallery, Maryknoll Ecological Sanctuary on July 5 at 4 p.m.

There will be an artist’s talk preceding the reception.

The photographs by Drori were first shown at the Art Gallery Twenty Four, entitled “Bonding” in Tel Aviv, Israel, then as a traveling exhibition at the Jewish Museum in Melbourne, Australia in 2010.

Alphabet of Eve is an auto-biographical work where the artist portrays 26 women characters she has known in her lifetime and of women in ancient Biblical texts that pertain to the land of Israel.

The photographs have become part of her self-discovery, reflecting her surroundings, travels, her inner journeys, the varied conditions of daily life, and other facets of the physical landscape and the social-cultural world.

These self-portraits, taken from 1987 to 2000, were photographed on black and white film and darkroom-printed by her and Baguio-born photographer Emmanuel “Mannix” Santos. Based in Melbourne, Australia, Santos curated the 2010 exhibition at the Jewish Museum and this year arranged the show’s travel to the Philippines. 

Alphabet of Eve is being shown for the first time in the Philippines at the Sanctuary Gallery.

This exhibition offers a vantage point for viewers to see the images collectively and gain insight into the spirit of a woman in these times – to understand how the dreams, the struggles and vision of all   women are, in essence, no different from one another.

Together, these photographs present the artist’s “sense of freedom, peace, and understanding of the human soul.”

Drori was born in Jerusalem in 1957.  Both her parents were Austrians.

From 1980 to 1983, she traveled to different parts of the world with her husband Uri. In the northern Philippines, some of the places they visited in 1981 were Baguio, Sagada, Bontoc, and Banaue. She has joined several group shows in, among others, Israel, Belgium, Australia, Italy, and USA. Drori is an art therapist in the Israel educational system.

The exhibition runs until Oct. 15. Sanctuary Gallery is located at Campo Sioco. For inquiries, write to or call 424-5745.
