Contemporary Agriculture in Israeli Art. Curator: Tali Tamir 19.2.2015 - 13.6.2015

Ran Barlev’s Echoing Landscape fuses a representation of rural agricultural landscape with painted models of minimalist-geometric sculpture by Israeli sculptor Nahum Tevet: two utopian routes that outline the modernization of the local space (new Israeli agriculture) and the progressive paradigm of modernism (rational-geometric sculpture). A loudspeaker is planted at the heart of this “mixed” landscape, emitting sounds of cricket chirping and distant echoes of bass drums—a soundtrack of nature, night, and muffled tidings.
