Yanai Segal’s “Walkway” is an invigorating, mysterious exhibition at The Jerusalem Artists’ House . This is not only the chance to view a special talent; this exhibit also offers a unique artistic experience for the viewer.
The site-specific installation turns the gallery space into a catalyst for its audience’s reception. White gravel covering the floor creates a pathway, guiding viewers through this aesthetic sequence.
Featuring pieces evocative of Yanai Segal’s ouvre, the viewer encounters symbols which are commonplace in Jerusalem and Jewish culture. Most are also associated with spiritual significance. Segal reinvents these pieces, magnifying their monumental impressions upon us.
The mediums used in this exhibit are surprising. Hamsas which the artist meticulously sculpted from concrete; other works feature the use of gravel, plastic and sharp chunks of Styrofoam.
Yanai Segal has a special connection with design and architecture. He is inspired by a desire to link historic with modern, experiential with realization. His questions come fashionably into life with this exhibition.
“Walkway” is open until Saturday, December 26th, 2015. Highly recommended by yours truly!
