We've seen cheese graters in our day, but nothing like the one in the photo above. It's part of a new exhibit called “No Place Like Home” which just opened at the Israel Museum and runs through the summer. According to the museum, "the exhibition examines how artists have incorporated commonplace household items into their work, removing them from the context of the home in ways that subvert the mundane experiences of daily life"

Beds, spoons and other kitchen appliances appear larger-than-life in these displays. In the photo above, a visitor looks at installations as he sits next to the 'Grater Divide' installation by artist Mona Hatoum. Below, a few more photos from the opening weekend.
