On Wednesday December 14 2011, Galleria Marie-Laure Fleisch is presenting, for the first time in Italy, the work of two Israeli artists, Maya Attoun and Hilla Ben Ari, in the exhibition Falling in Line.
As can be deduced from the exhibition’s title, Falling in Line, the visual processes of Maya Attoun and Hilla Ben Ari are characterized by linear elements that give birth to a shared, single installation, thus activating a relationship between their respective works and the space that contains them. The combined effect of lines crossing and zigzagging through imaginary or real grids and textures, generates intermittent movements that are intended to cause tension between a rational sense of order and a more introspective, chance-driven tendency.
The exhibition’s title also reveals a phonetic similarity to the expression “Falling in Love”, thus introducing another issue tackled by the artists, namely the inextricable relationship between physical and emotional oscillation.
