Splash – A project by artist-filmmakers Vivian Ostrovsky and Silvi Simon
The Tel Aviv Center for Contemporary Art and the Jet Lag Productions are presenting since last Thursday at the Jaffa Port, a 16mm film installation. Both focusing on experimental cinema, Ostrovsky who studied in Paris and Simon who follow a cursus in Brussels, have also their love for the Super8 format in common. The film brings together personal and anonymous footages. There is something very technic, very digital in their film. The devices (Silvi Simon optical sculptures) that they are using to screen the film on and through, and therefore manipulate and deconstruct the images, bring to the whole installation a poetic and light feeling.
When | Until October 28
Where | Hangar 2, Jaffa Port
Holon Fashion Week 2013
Israel is surely not yet a fashion center such as Paris, New York or Milan, and prima facie Israeli fashion is hard to describe. Holon with its iconic Design Museum is trying to make the city a international center for design. It’s the 6th year that the Museum will hold the fashion week, and will this time bring the focus on handcrafting and the new technologies in fashion :”Holon Fashion Week will revolve around two main trends in attitude to materials in contemporary fashion endeavour: a return to handcrafting in contrast with adopting advanced technologies, which were foreign to the fashion world and now provide fashion designers with tools that change the rules of the game”. Conferences, lectures, pop up spaces, fashion installation, panels will be there to entertain the happy fews.
When |From October 14 to October 19

Yuval Yairi – Land
This Tel Aviv born artist has already an impressive carrier behind him, exhibited in important institutions such as the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, the Tel Aviv Contemporary Art Museum or the San Diego Natural History Museum. His new body of work is bringing us through different landscapes with a man holding the white letters of the word “LAND”. The questioning of the meaning of land and space is recurrent in Israel. An interesting and intense exhibition.
