HAIFA MUSEUM OF ART SOLO SHOW
WORLD 5 VERSION 2

World5version2 installation view (detail) Mixed media, video, sound. Haifa Museum of Modern Art 23/7/16-22/1/17

Curator: Svetlana Reingold, Revital Silverman Grun, Limor Alpern Zered

The curator’s statement:
In recent years, post-postmodernism has been gaining strength, expressing this generation’s attempt to overcome the postmodernism of the late twentieth century, as a general response to the present, conflict- ridden moment. Post-modernism characterized by irony, pastiche, relativism, and the rejection of major narratives. By contrast, post-postmodernism is concerned with the revival of utopian conceptions of universal truths, as well as with ethical questions, humanism, and their significant relation with the world of culture and art. The new exhibitions will examine the issues involved with this change – such as the future vision of new ways of living, meta-geography and human existence in a polarized space, the return to myth and ancient sources, and more.

Ran Slavin’s video installation at the Haifa Museum of Art is comprised of a number of video sources, electronic, digital, sound, and light objects (the work’s first version was shown at the Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art earlier this year, curated by Aya Lurie). Together they combine and form a fragmented installment occurring intensively, simultaneously, and repetitively, in a number of locations. The project reflects a technologically, culturally, ethically, and aesthetically complex portrait of the present with respect to time, place, and space. Slavin works with layered digital 3-D animation, reflecting on the experience of our disconnection from natural time. He proposes a technological space and time capsule as a sensorial space, reflecting the virtual-digital age.
The project’s title echoes the common categorization of the world’s countries into “first,” “second,” and “third worlds,” according to parameters such as regime, economy, and technological progress. World 5, Version 2 is a virtual world no longer dependent on representational or photographic strategies. In it, time deviates from the natural order and is no longer dependent on the orbits of the sun and Earth, which determine a 24 hours per day cycle divided hours into light and dark. This world is a binary, uninterrupted one. Multi-screen, fragmented, electricity-dependent, and characterized by technological excess and information. It is spread out in arrays of screens, projections, sound and light objects creating a multi-screen heterotopic arrangement with winding nets, exposed electrical bearings, computerized graphics, light strips and electronic units attached to each other provisionally, with office paper clips.
World 5, Version 2 proposes a contemplation of a flickering, ever-changing space with awe and enchantment. Three -dimensional images of mechanical bodies and ancient landscapes interspersed with abstract multi-layered digital models are placed in landscapes recalling science fiction and virtual aesthetics. This world offers different parallel possibilities, for which there is no structured “proper” course of viewing or understanding. It is a simultaneous, hybrid utopian world, characterized by movement between the physical and the digital with no beginning, middle or end.

Galaxy Room 309
Is a recently completed permanent artist room at Art Plus Hotel in Tel Aviv. All of the room’s edges have been marked with warm white LED light strips. By highlighting the room’s outlines I was seeking to cancel its borders. In the centre of the space hangs a lamp resembling a dark moon. The white ceiling is punctured with holes giving way to light when the room is dark. The guest/user has 3 options to utilize the room. They can open the “moon” lamp, the wall contours, the “stars” ceiling in separate. Galaxy Room 309 evolved in large from a study of the room’s nuances, especially the light streaks that shone through the venetian blinds and painted laser like lines in the room. I wanted to apply this phenomenon to the rest of the room, to widen the room beyond its given dimensions with the use of light, to turn it into a portal.
