Efrat Zehavi – Anonymous Glossy

Efrat Zehavi presents Anonymous Glossy, an artwork in the guise of a luxury magazine. This image-rich glossy features portraits of Rotterdammers, who tell of their experiences and desires. Before launching this special project, Özkan Gölpinar, currently researching Contemporary Art Beyond Boundaries at Leiden University, in discussion with Efrat Zehavi, independent curator and critic Nat Muller presents a lecture, and Landa van Vliet recites some of the stories.

Efrat Zehavi (Israel, 1974) is a visual artist living and working in Rotterdam. She works with theatrical scenes of clay human figures, modelled after real people, illustrating existential questions and social stories. In Prague, she learned from foremost doll animators about classic animation.

Zehavi’s presentation and discussion is part of a lively public programme that runs parallel to the group exhibition, Going To Forget. During the exhibition period, besides Zehavi’s  presentation, there will be a performance by artist Sara Hamadeh, a solo performance by theatre maker Abhishek Thapar and a video-experiment by performance artist Nicola Unger.
