Dana Levy: World Order

CCA Center for Contemporary Art Tel Aviv

September 13 - November 10, 2012

On view at the CCA are three new video works and two series of photographs by Dana Levy from the past year, shown in Israel for the first time.

As in many of Levy’s other recent works, she explores a space that presents and represents, appropriates and defines objects. For her, a space of this kind can be found in historical or natural museums, as well as in functional “display spaces” such as the shelves of seized contraband goods at customs houses, or haphazard, hidden ones like a cave bearing witness to those who had found temporary refuge within it. These display spaces of preserved nature and controlled past relate to memory and to the way the latter is translated in the encounter between the aesthetic and the political. They present a sort of collection, which goes on to define and catalog the perception of the culture that brought it forth.

Dana Levy’s works had been shown in museums and galleries all over the world, including: The Israel Museum; Herzlyia Museum of Contemporary Art; Bass Museum of Art, Miami; and The Contemporary Art Museum, Cleveland.
 Her works have also been screened at The Contemporary Art Museum, Buenos Aires; Center Pompidou, Paris; Tate Modern, London; and Loop Art Fair in Barcelona.
