Exhibition curated and designed by Neil Nenner and Avihai Mizrahi.

The exhibition, showcasing over 170 pieces from the Galila Barzilaï-Hollander Collection, aims to question the essence of the simple things that are almost impossible to notice, as well as to live without. The domestic functional objects people use every day are too often taken for granted and their role understated; with 'Overdose', their function is transformed and expanded, and the objects are given new life in a playful and childlike space. In 'Overdose', chairs, coins, shoes, WC, utensils, microwaves, and other everyday objects have undergone a creative process of cutting, folding, erasing, copying, and disrupting, through which their essence is stripped, and their value altered to question their monetary worth. The exhibition recalls Andy Warhol and his signed one-dollar bill that, after the signature, rose in value and became a work of art.
