Irit Tamari’s Studio Saleby Anna Kopito | 03.12.14
This weekend (5-6.12/2014) Irit Tamari will hold a special Studio Sale, organized by Adi Artsi and Sarah Peguine.
In this event, Tamari will exhibit both new works and pieces from the past, photographs alongside 3-D works, which will also be available to purchase at special prices. The aim of the sale is to support Tamari’s new and extensive project, which will debut in the upcoming show at the Herzlyia Museum of Art, during February 2015.
Irit Tamari (b. 1976 Kibbutz Tzora, lives in Givatayim and works in Tel Aviv) is a MFA Graduate from the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design and BED Graduate from the Midrasha School of Art, Beit Berl.
Tamari addresses photography as a material in a form of paper which encompasses the paradox between the depth of the documented subject and the flatness of the material itself. Tamari cuts her own photographs and constructs from the fragments new worlds in two or three dimensions; she creates installations, sculptures and photographs from those photo-cuts. Her works abandon printed photography in order to create a new possible world, thus she is challenging the medium of photography itself. Tamari’s works unveil not only the subject matters but also the blank back of the photographic papers, which reminds the viewers that reality is only an illusion, which is always mediated. Tamari has exhibited her works in many exhibitions in Israel and abroad, among them exhibitions at the Herzliya Museum, Chelouche Gallery (Tel Aviv), and Jia Li Gallery (Beijing).
