Galia Eibenschutz: Red. Blue. Orange. Yellow. Linescapes.
Saturday March 28 – Saturday May 16, 2020
Galia Eibenschutz’ practice investigates the process of transformation in nature, and in the body, and how this is linked directly to the creative process; a process that is itself a transformative one. Her investigation is a constant attempt to decipher the process of adaptation and displacement of the body in its environment; an attempt to find bridges between internal and external spaces. Her work speaks to a live organism that evolves in its environment, and at the same time, an environment that opens and transforms as a gigantic organism. Eibenschutz’ interest is to mark the passage of time and register the movement of each moment in a specific and temporal span. Her background in dance and movement, as well as her body itself, are key tools in her work that are always at play. Movement and drawing are two constant expressions in her practice; she sometimes features one more than the other but often uses both at the same time. This exhibition is presented in partnership with the 33rd Images Festival: April 16-22, 2020.
