Eastern Skies Blush - Gallery Talk
Artist Hinda Weiss in conversation with curator Vardit Gross
Friday, December 24th, 12pm
Join us for a Christmas celebration with spiced wine and chocolate, a digital snowstorm and a conversation about photography, New York, wanderings and lockdowns.
Via meticulous editing, Weiss presents a video collage that connects the different times: moments of despair and moments of respite, the parks and spontaneous gatherings, movement restrictions and lockdowns. The documented image is her raw material, from which she cuts and paints, builds new scenes and creates a different, parallel, possible reality. While the common use of advanced editing technologies is to falsify reality and present it as different from what it was, Weiss's video collages bring us closer to reality as experienced. In the exhibition she proposes an intricate view of time and transitional moments; an augmented time which allows forward and backward observation at layers of reality that take place at different times and in different places simultaneously, crystallizing to form one image.
