Yair Barak: Moving away from something he stares at

Yair Barak: Moving away from something he stares at

Yair Barak explores photography’s role as a medium by deconstructing aesthetic structures of power and examines its documentary quality alongside its story-telling abilities. Barak's work is composed of direct photography—which denotes, signifies and asserts a random encounter between gaze and object—and of disruption processes that sabotage constitutive historical narratives of Western culture. The exhibition brings together traditional display and sculptural installation, where the viewer is an essential mediator. 
In his works, Barak turns the mundane into monumental, while presenting the monument as secular.
