The graphic intervention of illustrators in photos of private interior spaces that were planned and designed by leading architects and interior designers and published on Xnet.

Warehouse 2, Theater Gallery, Jaffa Port

In an individual exhibition, Niv Tishbi displays a large-scale installation with body parts that were removed from any use and organized into a non-self-contained system. The new body of works, which was created especially for the space and occupied 500 square meters, explores the emotional state between vitality and decay. Tisbi examines the transitions between creation and disassembly, in a space maintained by a repetitive mechanism that moves between action and suspension.

The exhibition is supported by Moetzet Hapayis for Culture and Art, Mifal Hapayis.
