Musical Diaries is an exhilarating work by Miloš Tomić (Serbia, 1976) a multimedia artist whose works span film, photography, collages and sculpture. It started off as intuitive daily musical therapy, improvising on various instruments and paying attention to sounds made by daily objects at home, on the street and slowly, everywhere he traveled.
All the works of Zoya Cherkassky-Nnadi (Kiev 1976, represented by Rosenfeld Gallery in Tel Aviv) which are exhibited in circle1, except of three paintings were done during her two visits to Ngwo, Nigeria, in 2013. The three larger paintings, were produced when she got back to Israel, based on fresh memories as well as preliminary sketches done in situ.
Alona Harpaz’s video Salt # 3 which will be displayed at circle1 in the next exhibition, is a fascinating experience relating to Israeli folk dance. Israeli folk dance answers some of the parameters required to define a Folk dance such as being performed by people with little or no professional training, but other than this characteristic none of the attributes related to the term appear in any of them.
In our next Exhibition, opens on the 4th of April, Circle1 is displaying Alona Harpaz, an Israeli artist who works and lives in Berlin since 2001 and is represented by the Sommer Gallery in Tel Aviv. Harpaz is also the founder of the Infinite Earth foundation.
We are extremely excited to invite you to a 2 day work shop by Miloš Tomić the representative of Serbia at the 2013 Venice biennale. Tomić (Belgrade 1976) a spectacular multimedia artist whose projects span film, photography, collages, and sculpture will guide us through 2 exhilarating days, where we will produce everything from ideas through sound while playing games, music and more.
In our main space of Circle1 we are displaying two exhibitions by two distinguishable artists – Khen Shish and Nevet Yitzhak. Both artists are dealing with the problematic of Orientalism in Israeli culture and the complex local identity, and refer to it through personal and theoretical prisms.
