Artport Tel Aviv - Ben Tsvi 55, Tel Aviv,
Artport is thrilled to host one of the “Exit Strategies” events – a series of artistic actions in the public space, by the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality and the Rabinovich Foundation for the Arts.
‘Wall Piece’ is a site-specific projection installation occurring in the space between Artport’s resident Dor Zlekha Levy’s studio and the wall of a building viewed from his window. Over the past few months, the artist photographed the wall under different lighting conditions, compiled the photographs and processed them digitally.
The complex, layered images that were created are projected back onto the wall from the studio’s window. The neglected wall, which stands completely dark during the night, is then exposed through the projection. Its central formative elements – the window frame, the remains of dripping white wall paint, the peeling plaster, the crumbling bricks, the plastic tubes – are also repeated in the projected images, creating a range of optical illusions.
In a feedback loop, the wall resonates itself and becomes infinite, a prolific ground for artistic action and a new perspective, which reconfigures the familiar urban space.
The piece will be projected on Thursday, May 28th and on Saturday May 30th, between 8pm and 11pm, Artport’s entrance, Ha’Manor/ Ha’Amal.
