Joint creation with the artist Emi Sfard (animations)
The exhibition is like a home. By erecting walls and installing windows and doors the artist partitions the space, while also inviting the visitor to wander between all these and glancing through the partitions at the outside world. The paper screens, walls, curtains, windows, shades and figures, All these taken together make up a fragile homely structure with no foundations.
Mazliah builds a pictorial world using materials such as Chinese rice paper, graphite, carbon, ink, watercolors and glues. The rice paper is thin and fragile, but Nir’s unique style makes it stiff, while also rendering it transparency and depth. Once the work finds its place in space, it comes to life, attains material vitality and acquires narrative meaning
