Haim Steinbach at Braverman Gallery, Tel Aviv
Haim Steinbach’s work is on show at the group exhibition ‘Leaving and Returning’ at Braverman Gallery in Tel Aviv. The exhibition seeks to instill a sense of belonging in Braverman Gallery’s new exhibition space. It is composed of works concerning the tension between the domestic and the public, art and design, old and new, and between past and present. Accepted forms of displaying art and design allow us to read into a setting, providing us with a sense of mutual understanding in a dialogue with the objects we choose to surround ourselves with. In a digital age where sharing and privacy no longer refer to intimate encounters alone, our physical spaces have become no less intriguing as art and design continue to be charged with psychological, social, or political associations and ideas, some giving rise to uncertainty more than others. The works in the exhibition, and the actual and representational spaces between them, questions structures of form and function concerning the identity of an object in space as well as its representation.February 6 – April 30, 2020.
