The majority of works in Noa Brezner’s exhibition portray a void: anonymous receptacles of space whose affinity with art erupts now and then, but most of the time they remain silent, bright spaces awaiting things to come or remembering what had happened in them. Brezner photographs art exhibition spaces, but unlike many photographs depicting art works or exhibitions, her photographs ignore the work of art, shifting the gaze to the site of the occurrence, to the arena of art’s emergence.
Her works come from a tradition of direct, harsh and masculine photography, but receive a surprising turn when they highlight the artists’ gaze and emphasize the strict contour of the architecture of exhibition spaces. These turn into shaped raw material, geometric and abstract, that put the viewer in a meditative and metaphysical experience.
