Join us for an online conversation about the exhibition Architecture is Frozen Music, which presents three iterations of an ongoing series of stop-motion videos created by the French artist Laure Catugier in the cities of Tel Aviv, Tehran and Alexandria.
Catugier will talk about the artistic work process involved in the series, which combines walking through the city streets and a visual and acoustic investigation of modernist architectural forms and manifestations in places she visits on artist residency programs. She will talk about the artistic language of her collage and about her collaboration with the sound artist Hagai Izenberg.
Dr. Michal Huss, will reflect on the agency of pedestrians to rewrite the city’s architectural syntax, on the poetic and aesthetic qualities of walking as well as the ability of this seemingly banal activity to transgress social-political divides, and on the role of art in reconfiguring the city Dr. Neta Feniger will present a historical perspective on planning, building and concrete in the Middle East and on architectural modernism as a uniting practice in the region. She will discuss professional connections between planners, builders and engineers, and their relations with clients living under different political and economic regimes.
