Nevelot

Adi Nachshon

October 1 - November 12, 2009

Braverman Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Adi Nachshon’s new solo exhibition, Nevelot. For Nevelot, Nachshon creates exaggerated, grotesque figures, including scavengers atop immense pedestals. Objects in the exhibition are presented as museum-like trophies, elevated and framed. In the central exhibition space, mammoth cement-colored pedestals are installed on the cement floor, as if rising from it, almost over-powering the viewer with their inhuman proportions. Together with the feral characteristics incorporated into the figures, including claws, fangs and drool, Nachshon emphasizes human situations, traits, features and props. Neither human nor animal, the depicted characters are a hybrid of the two identities. As reflections of the artist’s persona, the extra-human figures ally themselves with heavy-metal subculture. Using these aesthetics Nachshon presents the “I” through, incorporating real and fantastical elements. At the same time, it is the fantastical alter-ego that rules: the markers of identity expose fragility and potential chaos. Adi Nachshon (b. 1980) graduated from the Avni Institute of Art and Design in 2007. Lives and works in Tel Aviv. Nachshon has exhibited in group exhibitions at the Haifa Museum of Art and other spaces in Israel. His work is feature in public and private art collections, including the Dov Schiff Collection and the Adi Keizman Collection. Adi Nachshon, Nevelot, Oct 1 – Nov 12, 2009
