Authentic Copy: A Solo Exhibition by Rona Perlman

Ron Perlman's exhibition in Diaghilev Gallery in Tel Aviv explores the origin and reproduction in art

One of the central themes of this exhibition is the question of origin and reproduction in art, a question that has preoccupied art and philosophy since the birth of the modern era and the development of technologies for printing and copying, first mechanical and then digital technologies. This question is closely related to the question of authenticity of the artwork and its cultural, social and economic value.

In her works, Perlman seems to be trying to restore the work of art’s ‘halo’, lost, according to Walter Benjamin, with the invention of photography and the development of technical and mass means of reproduction. She distinguishes herself by eliminating a fundamental element of commercial reproduction, which is the use of technology. Her means are manual and non-mechanical, she creates prints by "domestic" means, the transfer.
