BATTLE, THERAPY, LIVING ROOMby Dalit Nemirovsky | 06.12.12
A solo exhibition by Guy Yanai is now showing at the art space at Rothschild 69.
The exhibition – Battle, Therapy, Living Room, includes five paintings. Three works are a re-mix of the Battle of San Romano, the fourth – Therapy, depicts the psychoanalysis clinic where the artist spends some of his time, and the fifth – Living Room, features the exterior of the artist’s home.
The Battle of San Romano, a triptych painted by Paolo Uccello, describes the battle between the fighters of Florence and Siena at three different points in time on the day of the battle, in 1432. This triptych is the center of Yanai’s exhibition, which addresses the day-to-day atheist struggle in contemporary society.
Yanai, armed with the abstraction of the subjects of his paintings as a method of resistance and protest, shifts in this exhibition from a private conflict over lifestyle, to a personal struggle over living space, and a greater battle over human space.
