Noa Nahari

relationship 8

Noa Nahari's artwork relationship 8 arranges the frames of windows – cut into segments, some still holding squares of glass – into a floating portrait that meditates on the many meanings of the relationship between inside and out. Breaking apart and expanding these ordinary, 'ready-made' frames, Nahari creates new connections between shapes, colours and space while simultaneously telling a 'framing story' of a building, real or imagined, that has its own past, present and future. Ultimately relationship 8 opens a dialogue between viewer and building by disrupting the function of an object that is ordinarily taken for granted: by taking away the window's literal role as a link between inside and outside, Nahari turns the window from something we look through to an object we look at, and in doing so reveals new meanings and interpretations.
