Reconstructed deconstruction

Schönfeld Gallery Brussels

Liat Elbling, ‘Untitled’ 2009.
From January 10, 2021 until February 20, 2021
This fall, Schönfeld Gallery Brussels presents the group exhibition Reconstructed deconstruction. For this exhibition, the Israeli-Belgian art collector and founder of the gallery, Elie Schönfeld, selected five artists who all live and work in Tel Aviv.
The Schönfeld Gallery feels that the time is now ripe to dedicate an exhibition to contemporary art talent from Israel. Artists all over the world are struggling. Exhibitions are cancelled, projects are postponed and travelling is almost impossible. Even more than elsewhere, Israeli artists today are isolated from the rest of the world.
With an exhibition in Brussels, Schönfeld puts these artists in the spotlight and offers them an international platform.
The five artists each work from different disciplines. And although they express it in very different ways, their fascination of a process of deconstruction and reconstruction is their common denominator. Each in their own way, the artists explore the power of composition, the relationship between the depicted and the original, and the tension between abstraction and figuration.
The Participating artists are:
  • Liat Elbling
