Dana Yoeli – Fichte / Ashuchit | 1.7.16 – 30.7.16

47ac3daa-e0e6-4f2e-9929-6a8d6df903f1The subject of memory stands at the heart of Dana Yoeli‘s profoundly personal yet universal work. Memory, by nature, is illusory and intangible.

unnamed

Stereo is the first joint exhibition of the siblings Saskia and Tilman Wendland, curated by Yael Bartana.

The exhibition title Stereo, with its sign of two intersecting and overlapping circles, proposes a genuine investigation of the literal parameter specified by the gallery’s name “CIRCLE1”.

Past Exhibition: 25.10.14 – 29.11.14

IMG_1263In our current exhibition in Circle 1 we show three exceptional artists. Eli Gur Arie produces what appears to be at first glance sated objects, objects that celebrate a rich existence, imprisoned in an appearance that nullifies every kind of consciousness: too beautiful to ask questions, too spectacular to be troubling. On this basis begins the strange negotiation that Gur Arie’s works conduct with the world.
