FRAGMENTS Triptych #1

© Yigal GAWZE

Yigal Gawze’s photogr aphs capture the abstr action, the simplicity and the
optimism of early modernism in Tel Aviv.
He distills the essence of the Bauhaus to bring it alive in a moder n city and
concentr ates on the subtle effects of natural light upon architecture, a technique
that the masters of the modern movement themselves applauded.

THE EXHIBITION
FORM AND LIGHT is a photographic exhibition depicting Tel Aviv's "Bauhaus" architecture of the
1930s, based on Yigal Gawze’s series FRAGMENTS OF A STYLE.
FRAGMENTS explores the aesthetic language of Tel Aviv’s modernist architecture, capturing its
restored beauty exposed anew.
By focusing on the buildings' fragments, the color photographs examine the local adaptation of the
International Style, brought by European educated architects to the shore of the Mediterranean.
The images add up to create a portrait of a place by revealing the poetic essence of its architecture
and the role light takes in shaping it.
The vision of the fundamental forms is revealed here through a focus on
details: measured details, which create a kind of mathematics of refined
beauty. Here, too, the fragment strengthens the sense of value, in the sense
that less is more. Through Gawze’s treatment of interior details, the
thought and meticulousness devoted to each feature is revealed to us. Thus
one is given a kind of crucible in which form and content merge: beauty and
function become the beauty of functionalism.
Gilad Ophir, visual artist, photographer, curator and photography researcher

THE ARTIST
Yigal Gawze
Photographer, artist, architecture graduate and a Tel Aviv Bauhaus explorer.
Studied architecture at the University of Toronto and photography at the ENSAD in Paris.
His examination of the aesthetic language of Tel Aviv's International Style Architecture has led to a
photography exhibition and a book.
His art explores both the public realm of the urban landscape, and the private one, that of his
immediate surroundings. In both domains, he focuses on the fragment as means of revealing the
essence of the whole.
