Olaf Breuning: Groups Olaf Breuning: Groups

 

Curator: Leah Abir

 

Olaf Breuning is a prominent international artist who resides in New York and works in the fields of photography, sculpture, drawing and video.  His work deals with cultural and social stereotypes in a way that is blunt yet misleading in it's seriousness. "Groups", Olaf Bruining's extensive solo exhibition in the Haifa Museum of Art includes staged photographs from the last decade which include groups in different situations and apparel. In addition his trilogy of movies "Home" will be screened. "Home" describes in a caricature like way the journey of an enthusiastic tourist portrayed by the actor Brian Kerstetter, while he encounters different cultures around the world. His eccentric personality and his vast excitement regarding the local traditions that are perceived as obvious expose the artificial nature of their cultural portrayal.

On the opening night at 9pm on the museum patio Olaf Breuning's "Color Flairs" - an installation of different colored flairs on a metal grid - will be performed.

Olaf Breuning is one of the prominent young artists in the world. Born in Switzerland, 1970, lives and works in New York. His work has been displayed in solo and group exhibitions around the world, including the Whitney Biennial, New York, ICA London, Palais  De Tokyo, Paris, Migros Museum Zurich, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. His outdoor sculptures are placed in different cities, which include Toronto and New York. His visit in Israel has been made possible with the support of the Israeli Foreign Ministry and The Jerusalem Foundation in collaboration with the new residency program of The Artists' Studios, Jerusalem.

Sari Carel: Semaphore Island Sari Carel: Semaphore Island

 

Curator: Leah Abir

 

"Semaphore Island" is an exhibition comprised of layers of sound and image. It is based on a collection of sound recordings of extinct birds, which the artist collected for years. This collection is joined up by images produced by a phonautograph- an early sound writing machine invented in 1857. These images resemble abstract photographs or mechanical minimalistic drawings, and have been processed into silkscreen prints by the artist. Every print can be seen as a portrait of a bird of an endangered species, or a species already extinct.

Sari Carel (b.1975, Israel) is a multidisciplinary artist based in New York. She works primarily with video and sound, focusing on the interplay between the visual and the auditory. Carel's work has been exhibited internationally in venues such as Artists Space, Dumbo Arts Festival, Nicelle Beauchene Gallery, and Gavin Brown's Enterprise in New York; LAX Art and Young Projects in Los Angeles; and Tavi Dresdner, Contemporary by Golconda, and the Heder Gallery in Tel Aviv.

The artist's visit was made possible through the support of the Israeli Foreign Minstry.

Spolia  

Spolia

Group Exhibition

 

Artists: Yair Barak, Assaf Evron, Talia Keinan

Curator: Orit Bulgaru

 

Spolia is a term used in the field of archeology and architecture to describe the use of ancient structural elements in later building. In this fashion a layered platform combining old and new is established, for functional, political and other reasons. The pieces in this intimate group exhibition refer to the layered structure as a principle, as well as to the connection that occurs between different times on one platform - between signs from the past and cultural aspects of the present.
