curated by Yoav Efrati and Alona Harpaz
Curious Oranges is a group exhibition taking place in Circle1 Gallery that explores the innately human nature of curiosity. Curiosity is present in everyone. It unites us despite our differences. Curious Oranges presents the idea that individuals are separate entities but collectively form a united whole made of various characters, conflicts, motivations and thoughts.
The exhibition space is a liberated environment in which every creative expression is welcome. Therefore, the artists participating explore different disciplines and express various points of view. Although the connection between the works is not explicit, they are united by the individual curiosities that fuel each creative expression. The artists include Gil Shachar (sculptor), Julia Bulik (ceramic artist), Yoav Efrati (draughtsman), Roy Menachem Markovich (sculptor), Michal Rubens (painter), Atar Rabina (painter) and Alona Harpaz (painter).
Throughout the exhibition viewers are invited to enter the gallery space and observe the different artworks as separate units, while simultaneously observing the exhibition as a whole. Observing art is a complicated act that requires awareness and watchfulness. It asks of us: Does the viewers really see what they are seeing? What are they seeing while they are watching? Do they recognize the exhibition’s space? Are they awake?

Jacques Albeck and Boaz Arad
A photography exhibition
Boaz Arad is an Israeli photographer, videographer and visual storyteller based in Berlin. A trained photojournalist, his assignments around the world have taken him amongst other places to the hermit kingdom of North Korea where he witnessed the rise of Kim Jong Un and was given extremely rare front stage access to document the largest military parade in the history of the secretive country – and daily life on the streets of Pyongyang
Jacques Albeck was born in 1960 in Berlin. Early in his life, he discovered his love for photography. He got his first camera when he was only 13 and he kept on taking photos since then. Albeck took part in many photography workshops and competitions – and this is his first exhibition. Albeck says that the sentence “photography is drawing with lights” is a great inspiration for his works.
