The ferocious, pink world of Cindyrella lies in the heart of Nachlaot, in Barbur gallery. This collaborative exhibition is not to be missed.
Cindyrella features the stunning work of two very different female Israeli artists. The installation is based on the legendary work of Cindy Sherman, whose photographic series “Untitled Film Stills” from the 1970’s is still very influential and alive today.
Together with curator Pesach Slabosky, artists Nomi Tannhauser and Adva Drori interpret the cliché female subjects from Sherman’s photographs: strong, fun, alone, desperate, cigarette-smoking, plastic discombobulated, naked, made-up, covered, resilient.
Dolls, textiles, and sound are some of many pieces and metaphors that make up Drori’s wild installation, bringing Sherman’s fictional scenarios to life. Simultaneously, Tannhauser represents evocative figures and images with her profound paintings. Together, they harmoniously continue a legacy of feminist art and pique the viewer for interpretation.
Cindyrella is clever, awakening decades of art and progression. The exhibition is open until January 15, don’t miss it.
