DAVID TARTAKOVER | I PACKED ALONEby Dalit Nemirovsky | 01.01.13
“Everyone carries their load on their back – their unique memories, dreams outdated, unfulfilled love stories, wounds, scars, desires and hopes that are lying side by side in an imaginary suitcase, containing the pieces of our lives – those that were, those that could be if only… those that still might be. Like a modern reincarnation of a Pandora’s box, a suitcase better stay closed. If opened, it could release a series of disasters. However, it can also contain high hopes. ”
I packed alone… is David Tartakover’s new exhibition opening at the Contemporary by Goloconda Gallery on January 3rd.
Tartakover, known in his circle as Tarta, is without a doubt the most important Israeli graphic designer now days. A short bio will tell you that he is Israel Prize laureate for Design, 2002, an artist and designer of visual communication on culture and society, a curator for exhibitions on Israeli design and an explorer of the history of graphics in Israel.
I got a snick preview of this new work. Don’t miss it.
