3rd exhibition in the 18th Nidbach series: Inlusio
Curator: Boshi Roi
23 Feb — 20 April, 2013
In the exhibition “Inlusio”, Lital Nidam minimizes photography back into its most basic elements- drawing with light and the creation of images. From these elements she creates a magic show and a game of illusions of abstract images that seem nonetheless concrete. Effects of light and shadow produce images that appear to be real. Into this game of illusions Lital invites us to enter.
The dim, unclear photographs were created in a dark room, like that of a “Camera Obscura”. Rays of light were projected through a clear material onto a wall and revealed magical images, resembling landscapes of a different world. Although the photographs were not created for scientific research, they raise from the dead images that were made in an intellectual environment, in the scientific disciplinary that was the beginning of photography.
