Contemporary art in Berlin: Alona Rodeh's new installation

Contemporary art in Berlin: Alona Rodeh's new installation
Safe and Sound, sound and light installation.

art:i:curate artist, Alona Rodeh features Berlin-based techno Dj and Producer Rødhåd in her new sound and light installation, 'Safe and Sound', at Künstlerhaus Bethanien.

 

The ever increasing presence of safety and security products that reflect light in the city of Berlin, is the center of interest in Alona Rodeh’s new 3 part time-based Installation, created especially for Künstlerhaus Bethanien’s exhibition space. The installation consists of architectural interventions, a sound and light show, and a  welcoming showcase piece facing the street. For the exhibition, Rodeh invited Berlin-based techno Dj and Producer Rødhåd (Dystopian) to create a new original soundtrack, which leads the way for different states of light in the space.

 

Safe and Sound attempts to shed light on a current phenomena in visual and material culture, presenting the ability to capture light and reflect the gaze, as a form of choreographed resistance. Working with materials such as reflective fabric and “glow in the dark” photoluminescent vinyl, Rodeh’s resistance comes not as a critical disengagement, but as a deconstruction of the relationship of light and darkness, both physical and cultural. Having deep roots in the clubs of counter culture, where darkness allows for another kind of refuge, "Safe and Sound" highlights the trialectical manipulation of space and sense of time, as seen from the other side of today’s clubbing culture. In it's original form, clubbing is an act of defiance, and Rodeh stages a postlude to a relationship devoid of its original essence.

 

Alona Rodeh (b. 1979, Israel) is based in Tel Aviv and Berlin, and currently is an artist-in-residence at Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin. Through her work, Rodeh tests systems and cultural phenomenas to a level that agitates objects, spaces and situations into choreographed, extreme and often humoristic performances. Holding an MFA from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design (2009), she has presented large-scale commissioned projects among others at Helena Rubinstein Pavilion, Tel Aviv Museum (2013); The Center for Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv (2013); Plug In ICA (Winnipeg, 2012), The Israeli Center for Digital Art, Holon (2012); Rodeh performed at 54th Venice Biennial, The Israel Museum, Jerusalem and others. This will be her first solo show in Germany. A full CV can be viewed here.

 

The exhibition was made possible with the support of Artis, NY and the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
