What: Featuring the works of two leading contemporary artists from Israel, Dani Karavan and Atar Geva, an online exhibition brings together their work in a show titled ‘Plain Abstract’. They met at Givat Haviva (non-profit education centre founded in 1949) in its home for art, the GH Art Gallery. Growing into and out of the place, they engage with the space, with each other, and negotiate the idea of simplicity, the abstract, real, alive and mundane. Creative materials such as sand, the olive tree and citrus trees are Karavan’s art materials, a continuous and endless work of art. Geva’s spilled paint, spreading at will and becoming liquid or solidifying, and the sculptural combustion process, with their distinctive aroma, is both part of the processes as well as a co-creator of the works.
