For Shakine, however, the three appear as an outwardly indistinguishable trio. In his work they are a symbol for the three major world religions. In search of their common origins, the love of God or the dialog with Moses, the trio experience various bizarre as well as everyday situations.

As carefree as the drawings may appear to be, their statement is a serious one: Islam, Christianity, and Judaism share a common history despite the different interpretations of the scriptures. Their wishes, dreams, and aspirations are ultimately very similar.

Eran Shakine paints, draws, and creates sculptures and art in public spaces. He was born in Israel in 1962 to a French father and Hungarian mother, both of whom are Shoah survivors. He lives an works in Tel Aviv.
The exhibition title plays on the beginning of jokes based on stereotypes.
