Maya Zack "Made to Measure, videos and drawings" at Marie-Laure Fleisch gallery, until 17th November
Maya Zack won Celeste Prize 2008, video section.
On Monday, September 24th at 6 p.m., Galleria Marie-Laure Fleisch will open the third chapter of the project About Paper. Israeli Contemporary Art with a solo exhibition by Maya Zack entitled Made to Measure / videos and drawings.
The gallery hosts an installation looking like a sort of office that has been filled with paperwork, metal shelves and cardboard boxes, in order to partly recreate the setting that appears in the video Black and White Rule (2011), screened inside the installation itself.
The gallery’s Project Room hosts Mother Economy (2007), a video where the artist stages her own personal strategy for developing an alternative kind of memory, which does not passively reproduce the past, but rather reworks and reinterprets it.
Born in 1976, Maya Zack lives and works in Tel Aviv. She has exhibited in the most important museums of Israel (Israel Museum, Jerusalem, Museum of Art, Tel Aviv).
