Exhibition Into the Maelstrom

January 16, 2021, 5:30 pm8 pm.


This site-specific sculptural installation by Etty Yaniv is made of highly textured clusters of painted repurposed materials taken from her art studio and her everyday life: mainly assorted paper and plastic. These disjointed material fragments coalesce into sculptures of varied scales that are all lightweight and ephemeral yet by grouping them in dense clusters of detailed textured layers, they appear massive or even monumental. From afar they seem like tactile segments of satellite images or abstracted seascapes, predominantly in whites, grays, and blues, but from close-up they reveal tiny narrative documenting vignettes from the artist’s daily experiences.
