Gal Weinstein Representing Israel at the 2017 Venice Biennale
Gal Weinstein, AICF alum, is representing Israel at the 2017 Venice Biennale that was opened on May 13. His exhibition Sun Stand Still, curated by Tami Katz-Freiman, is on display at the Biannale at the Israeli pavilion.
Sun Stand Still is a new, site-specific installation which explores the human desire to stop time. Reflecting a fascination with actual and potential forms of creation and destruction, progress and devastation, this project critically engages with the mythological and Romantic images embedded in Israel’s collective memory. Each part of the exhibition is related to works created by Weinstein over the past decade, so that his entire oeuvre is woven into a single, cohesive installation.
