"Varda Carmeli: Security Wall"
2004-11-11 until 2004-12-07
gallery twenty-four
Berlin, , DE Germany

In this conceptual exhibition at Gallery 24 in Berlin, the Israeli artist Varda Carmeli explores the subject of the security fence at present being built in the State of Israel through photograpy, installation and painting. The Israeli Government's decision to build a defensive barrier arose from an existential need to defend its citizens against terrorist attacks. This project, however, raises dilemmas and criticism based on the delineation of the path of the fence and the suffering it causes the Palestinian population.

In her work Varda Carmeli imparts, from different aspects, her ambivalent feelings vis--vis this subject by delving into fragments on the one hand and projecting a global overview on the other. The seemingly esthetic presentation emphasizes this conflict and creates an uneasy ambience of objects that block and separate but nevertheless, on occasion, afford the viewer infinite vistas of the countryside.

Varda Carmeli has been a Premiere Portfolio artist at absolutearts.com since 2000. View more of her work at www.absolutearts.com/portfolios/v/varda
