May 2 – June 29, 2019 Opening: May 2 at 8 pm
CCA – Center for Contemporary Art Tel Aviv presents “Noa Glazer: Level Loophole.” The work of Noa Glazer (*1981, Haifa; lives and works in Tel Aviv) is focused on objects and materials, often fossilized and congealed in their settings. Into these objects, the artist intervenes to withdraw and expand their nature, from and beyond their own boundaries. In her first institutional solo exhibition, Glazer presents three points of view of her artistic practice. The first one is manifested through a new body of work, which includes, among other objects, four sculptures: two suspended objects made of felt which share a certain resemblance and two creased and pocket-like objects made of cotton and wool – one rising from the floor while the other is suspended in the air above it. The second point of view consists of existing works that were ‘reworked’ by the artist especially for this exhibition. The third point of view takes form as an artist-designed display featuring flat grey rectangular surfaces, which serve as a connective tissue between the objects and the floor, as the grey surfaces are also a platform for the objects to hover or rest upon.
The title of the exhibition, “Level Loophole,” derives from a method employed in industrial carpeting – level loop carpet – and also refers to the notion of loophole, a term with several applications, from architecture to tax evasion, that defines the possibility of escaping, avoiding, overturning, or manipulating a given set of rules.
“Noa Glazer: Level Loophole” is curated by Nicola Trezzi. The exhibition is supported by the International Council, the Biberstein Family and The Yehoshua Rabinovich Foundation for the Arts, Tel Aviv.
