The photographs in the exhibition were taken in film and are part of a project Noga Greenberg has been working on for the past few years. On weekends when she and her family travel, they spend the night in the homes of other families away from home. Minutes before the Sabbath begins, she photographs their temporary residence. Those precious minutes, before the sanctity of the day will forbid her from photographing, are bathed in a precious golden light that slants through the windows. Our gaze dangles in mid-air, swimming like tiny dust particles in the shimmer of light at the days end. We get a mere glimpse of something, not quite able to perceive the scene in its entirety, caught in a limbo of sorts.
This limbo is essential to the project; the ever present absence of people amplified by the apparent abundance of their personal affects; a home environment which appears alien and unfamiliar.
