from 2.2 – 2.3. 2018, israeli photographer eitan vitkon will show works from his cycles
“absent”, “thorns”, “wonder-fool” and “sea”
of the years 2011 to 2017 in our showrooms.
vitkon’s photographs and video art are about memory, subject, perception, and above all time. the longer one looks…, looks at or looks away, the stronger becomes the emotional attachment to the observed, in a positive or perhaps negative way. the perception may distort, the memory changes, it may rest on certain details.
in his artworks, time could be reversed or stretched, or it simply stands still. seen through the technologically sharpened or alienated eye, the natural components as well as human experiences appear almost detached from context, thus extracting fragility and vulnerability. vitkon’s large-format works captivate due to their high precision and strong aesthetics. none of his pictures undergo any computerized post-processing.
he has been working as a photographer for over 15 years, exhibiting in solo and group exhibitions, e.g. on israeli identity, and has become an internationally sought-after artist. his works are shown in widely known museums and galleries as well as in private collections.
