Third Floor on the Left - 31 Hama'aracha, Tel Aviv,
THE THINNING VEIL by Itamar Stamler at THIRD FLOOR ON THE LEFT will open on Thursday, January 31st, and will run through February 9th.
THIRD FLOOR ON THE LEFT is pleased to present THE THINNING VEIL commissioned project by Itamar Stamler.
THE THINNING VEIL leads us to an evasive moment, a passage that unfolds into an emergence between illusion, truth and the desire to withhold within an hermetic sphere that involves only two entities that are being hung up blindnesses on each other.
Itamar Stamler (born 1992) is a multi-disciplinary artist that lives and works in Tel Aviv. Stamler gained his BFA with honors from the Bezalel Academy of art and Design,Jerusalem (2017). Stamler additionally attended Hongik University of Arts, Seoul, South Korea (2016). Stamler exhibited among the rest at the Kupferman Collection Gallery, Kibbutz Lohamei Ha’ghetaot, (2017); as well as at the lights festival ,Tel aviv (2018). Stamler is currently participating in LIFE CHAPTERS, a second season of the Third Floor on the Left project, that includes a residency as well as a solo exhibition, curated and hosted by Meital Aviram.
THE THINNING VEIL by Itamar Stamler is the show of the first chapter in LIFE CHAPTERS – the second season of Third Floor on the Left. This season consists of five ‘chapters’ in which the participating artists will share their life with Meital Aviram for a month, prior to the show. During the residency, the artists and the curator will be contriving an exhibition in the same apartment they are accommodating. In the end of the stay, the show will be open for a week.
LIFE CHAPTERS is kind of a group exhibition that has been separated and splited for different time units, that weave together one linear route, an accumulation of significance. Each show will echo the memory of the previous one. In the heart of the project; The hybridisation between the artist’s studio and the living space of the curator. These – the artist, the space and the curator, are being bent together in the favor of the upcoming show, which will be infused in a mutual constant exposer. Each stay or ‘Chapter’ will be completing together the whole biography of the season.
LIFE CHAPTERS includes three individuals and two couples of artists in the following order: Itamar Stamler, May Zisman & Ofer Romano, Yasmin Caspin, Nimrod Alexander Gershoni & Ira Shalit, Or Ariely
Third Floor on the Left is a residential based seasonal project. In its first season the project has been constructed from seven separated exhibitions and site specific events. LIFE CHAPTERS , on the contrary, is a linear group show which divides into five parts, that are being unifying in conjunction to the shared living, and undermining the division between the artist and the curator, as well as their residential space. The aim of those intentions is to demand ‘genuine’ relationship.
Third Floor on the Left is curated and hosted by Meital Aviram
