Reappearing image – final exhibition by students from Bezalel Academy as part of a Printmaking course titled Abyss Through Heavens and the Reappearing Image led by Abraham Kritzman.
Participants: Roni Almagor, Ron Asulin, Alona lona, Maria Berger, Ary Weizman, Reut Yeshayahu, Aviv Calif, Noga Meroz, Elinor Kadussi Naim, Stav Porges, Tslil Eshel, Adi Paz, Or Shloman
The students worked with different aspects of printmaking and were asked to think of the relation printmaking could have to the space of the gallery and how it can interact with it. Our working process started with reading texts that have an allegorical relationship with the technical stages in different printmaking techniques, and in the case of the exhibition: William S. Burroughs, The Frisco Kid, The wild Boys.
“The act of repetition in Burroughs’s writing creates a fluid image in transition that depicts a nonlinear reality. In the exhibition we ask how the relationship between the prints and space can be built, change, warp and adopt additional meanings through the multiplicity of the image and its variations in different modes of display. In short, we are curious to see what happens to prints in space”
MEDIUM a performative exhibition by Faye Shapiro and Maya Resheff< opens monday 23.5 at 20:00 >
In their upcoming exhibition Maya Resheff and Faye Shapiro create a ritualistic space of practicing the crossover to a medial state of being.
with minimal means of sound, video and crafted objects the gallery space transforms into a performative, changing place which takes hold of the body and conducts in it questions about the connecting tissues, the Prima Materia, the will which moves the hand, the voices in our head, the powers of inspiration and the spirits of life.
Resheff’s and Shapiro’s performative actions center around voice and movement and seek to locate a medial body and a polyphonic expression to different states of consciousness and listening.
as a part of the exhibition the artists will perform at the space, entrance is free:
Mon. 30.5, Tues. 31.5, Wed. 1.6, Mon. 6.6, Tues.7.6, Wed.8.6 at 16:00 – 17:00.
