Nothing Will Ever Be the Same – Edith Kollath
German artist Edith Kollath exhibited at the Fair an arresting kinetic installation.
A square transparent cloth is lifted from the floor at its four corners. Slowly and with an accelerating movement towards the ceiling it is released just before touching the ceiling and falls towards the floor in various different forms and formations. The action is repeated over and over again. A calming rhythm is produced out of lifting, falling and pause.
A parallel process is taking place with the books surrounding the cloth. Antique books are resting on a shelf breathing peacefully. Each one has its rhythm and movement.
Edith Kollath is an artist based in Frankfurt. She is interested in breath, its rhythm and its qualities regarding room and time - not only in her artistic practice but also in self-experiments.
Kollath has exhibited extensively in Europe and this was her first exhibition in Israel.
