Curated by Shlomit Dror, the artworks in the show come into dialogue with the space existing architectural lines and forms.

Having an art exhibition in someone’s home and viewing works of art in a space that recalls our own, we begin to notice the way these two components connect and the impact this relation brings. The corridor, bedrooms, liv­ing room and other areas of the apartment have become the backdrohp for these artworks. The urban skyline of high-rises, skyscrapers and other architectural forms seen from the windows, further contextualize the works’ appearance in this setting. A Space from Without consists of site-specific installations, sculpture, paintings and works on paper, nonrepresentational as well as figurative works that explore the relationship between public and private spaces and consider (some even appropriate) the architectural forms of the cityscape.

Viewing these works of art in a private house, temporari­ly open for the public, the domestic components become integral to our experience in the space. Despite some elements that may evoke conventions of a white-box, the interventions between public and private as well as the works themselves displayed as such, render a range of unexpected encounters. In this exhibition, the corridor is more than a passage connecting between spaces, and as we walk through and look at the art, our pace chang­es and forces us to re-evaluate the surroundings. In the bedroom, or Gallery 2, are installations corresponding with the interior and the view outside. Other parts of the house and various windows act as “blank canvases,” and even though they have been repurposed, they still retain and evoke their daily use.

As such, the artworks as well as the viewers are consid­ered “guests” in someone’s home, temporary visitors, hosted in someone’s permanent dwelling. There is a level of familiarity as we walk around the corridor, the bedrooms and living room, while the artworks establish a dialogue with the components of the house itself, each responding differently to the environment, sound and light.
