On 17.09, in parallel with the opening of Hendrik Czakainski’s “Urban Investigations”, we are showcasing the latest works of Israeli contemporary artist Itamar Inbar. Itamar has been spending the last few months as a Urban Spree Resident Artist and has been working on a few analog installations which we are proud of showing in our Galerie’s “Ecke”
In the era of digitalism, analogue video is a worthless technology, forgotten about also in the art world. The video artist has become a programmer, being surrounded by data, changing and editing digital antimatter.
We change and are changed by the world around us. Like our memories change through time and events. And matter does too. No need to be afraid. Imagine the video artist again as a constructor or sculpturist instead, connecting with his the matter – mentally and physically.
The Video Home System (VHS) is the first technology used by the masses to capture moments, force memories to last. Inbar – as many of his generation – grew up with it, grew into it. Now with contemporary perspective, Inbar is re-examining this media, by turning video tape cassettes (VHS), video players (VCR) and old televisions into kinetic sculptures.
Inbar’s work was shown at Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art (Israel), Fresh Paint Art Fair (Israel), different galleries in Tel Aviv and Berlin.
