Congratulating my friend and colleague Merav Rahat, designer, curator, and design scholar for her new show ‘Moving On,’ at the Tel-Aviv-based Periscoper Gallery, where she collaborates with Yael Friedman. The central themes, physical and conceptual movement and change, reflective time, and space, extend the previous solo exhibitions of both artists at the same gallery. Rahat draws on conceptual abstractions of form and color to delineate personal stories and experiences resulting in sculptural versatile furniture pieces, where she combines philosophical thinking, and converses with the various chapters in the history of art and design and particularly that of the 80s. Friedman treats, on the other way interprets jewelry as games, breaking the rules of classic jewelry design, and creating objects that revises our perception of the nature of Contemporary Jewelry. The movement theme is present also in the process as both artists explore role reversal: when Friedman creates Rahat curates and vice-versa. The show is interesting both conceptually and aesthetically.
