      No Third / Elad Rosen

      Curator: Tamir Erlich

      Opening:  Thursday, 13/1/22 at 19:00

      Closing:  Saturday, 5/3/22 at 14:00

      In the exhibition, “No Third” the rich and absurd visual language of Elad Rosen comes to life with an historical, epic, and fictional event that is frozen in time.  The gallery becomes the scene of destruction from a battle and the feeling of danger invades the relationship between the fragile ceramic sculptures and the visitors.  The violent scene in the exhibition, without context, delineates the space where war is presented and experienced as a predetermined show that is inevitable.

      Split / Yaacov Kaufman

      Opening:  Thursday, 13/1/22 at 19:00

      Closing:  Saturday, 5/3/22 at 14:00

      An act in an abstract concept, timeless and universal, a synonym for beauty, harmony, and perfection, meets a modern, artificial, mundane material.  So, what can be new about the sublime concept of symmetry when using an apparently simple, poor plywood? In the exhibition are about 30 plywood pieces that were cleaved open with an ax, quickly and deftly by Yaakov Kaufman exposing the inside of the plywood which became a rich surface to be observed in awe, explored, fascinated by the material symmetry that occurs or to take the opportunity to resist and disrupt.

    • Zoom Lecture Sunday 30.01.22 at 20:00 (Israel time)

      Artist, designer and Eco – Activist / Annelie Grimwade Olofsson

      LECTURE SERIES AT THE BENYAMINI CENTER – Above and Below the Surface

      Lecturer: Annelie Grimwade Olofsson ,Denmark

      Grimwade Olofsson, born in Sweden, is an artist, designer and activist. She holds a bachelor’s degree in design from the Royal Danish Academy (KADK), her work exhibited throughout Europe, and the United States. Her sculptural objects and work process explore the correlation between industry, society and the environment from a material point of view. She typically works in respons to social and environmental issues, either by interacting with a specific place and often by collecting industrial waste materials and byproducts, which she disassemble, shred, burn and up-cycle to create objects with unconventional aesthetics, textures and colours. Her main goal is to spread knowledge and to raise awareness of the human influence on the environment in the supposed Capitalocene era* and to challenge the thought of the relationship between material value, consumption and the environmental ‘price’ paid for it. During her presentation, Grimwade Olofsson will review a number of projects she has been working on in recent years and talk about how the critical relationship between economy, industry and environment is posing Social and Environmental issues and how it manifests in her work.
