Circle1 - Platform for Art & Culture, 19.00h
Duration: 15 Aug19 Sep
Opening
Yochai Matos uses in his works basic and simple images derived from the Modern Culture; images which already contain layers of replication and recycling - an evolution which leads both to the depletion and the over-readability of these images. By dealing with pop and kitsch icons Matos wishes to touch once again the romantic, authentic and lost emotions, suggesting a simple and comforting way of confronting the contemporary disease of emotional disability.

New Barbizon group - Anna Lukashevsky at Circle1
Opening
The New Barbizon Group is a refreshing and important arrival on the art scene in Israel and beyond. It comprises five Israeli women artists who were trained in art academies in the Soviet Union, and later in Israel and Europe, who leave the studio as a group to paint from observation, usually in an urban setting. They offer a contemporary version of the tradition of open-air painting (en plein air), rooted in nineteenth-century French Realism.

tinsel town das gift geovanna gonzalez
Opening
Tinsel Town is a cultural and environmental exploration of home for GeoVanna. Her relocation to Berlin resulted in an objectivity that allowed a closer look at The Entertainment Capital’s obsession with status, reputation and wealth; how it effects the physical appearance of the Los Angeles cityscape and the declining condition of the environment. Gonzalez displays the appearance-driven mindset of Angelenos in the way that success is authenticated through...

Line of Least Resistance

„A crack is not a static state but a stage in a process of gradual shear that might expand and tear through a buildings structure and skin along the line of least resistance. Cracks register the evolving contradictions between the static inertia of built structure and the constantly transforming field of forces operating around and within it. Cracks are thus both lines in space and processes in time.“ (Eyal Weizman)

Her work is dedicated to the small things, the unsuspicious stuff of our daily environment that we use and discard without regard.
The artist reconstructed her objects in oversized dimensions, in paper, and she pencilled their surface with scrupulous accuracy up to striking deception.
Within her kinetic objects the things are prompted to a perpetual movement aiming at new,...

The new works by Barbara Probst are once again involved with the concept of simultaneity: multiple cameras, all focused on a particular scene are each connected through a radio control system and release at the same moment.
Barbara Probst puts the resulting photographs together as multi-part works, which seem to the viewer to be both simultaneous and sequential.
The individual pictures in these sequences appear to be contradictory and antithetical to...
