THE 2011 RAPPAPORT PRIZE FOR A YOUNG ISRAELI PAINTER | MICHAEL HALAK: FACES AND LANDSCAPES

THE 2011 RAPPAPORT PRIZE FOR A YOUNG ISRAELI PAINTER
MICHAEL HALAK: FACES AND LANDSCAPES

The exhibition focuses on Michael Halak's
series of portraits and landscape paintings,
which are charged with the tension between
presence and absence, between identification
and non-identification, between testimony and
silencing, between memory and forgetfulness.
Halak's paintings, with their disturbing images of
destruction, deletion, dismantling and damage,
subvert the realistic style that seeks to capture an
image of a whole, identical reality.
