Boaz Aharonovitch - Daliy Practice, Growing a Garden for an Unknown Lover
Daily Practice is a “surname” for a series of photographic projects based on time and rules of actions. 'Growing a Garden for an Unknown Lover' is a month project, in which Aharonovitch has grown, in his studio, a garden on a table. The 'Garden' was made from flowers and vegetation he found in his immediate surroundings in South Tel Aviv.
Following their exposure at the Fresh Paint art fair, the installations will be exhibited at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art in July and at the Herzliya Museum in September.
German artist Edith Kollath exhibited at the Fair an arresting kinetic installation.
A square transparent cloth is lifted from the floor at its four corners. Slowly and with an accelerating movement towards the ceiling it is released just before touching the ceiling and falls towards the floor in various different forms and formations. The action is repeated over and over again. A calming rhythm is produced out of lifting, falling and pause.
A parallel process is taking place with the books surrounding the cloth. Antique books are resting on a shelf breathing peacefully. Each one has its rhythm and movement.
Edith Kollath is an artist based in Frankfurt. She is interested in breath, its rhythm and its qualities regarding room and time - not only in her artistic practice but also in self-experiments.
Kollath has exhibited extensively in Europe and this was her first exhibition in Israel.
