Niv Gafni


In the installation “Fauna,” artist Niv Gafni builds a set of metal sculptures and positions them as a flock. Gafni projects natural/animalistic properties on synthetic materials, focusing on the material’s characteristics and behavior, in terms of both movement and sound. What could have happened outdoors, in a hidden lake in a high valley between the mountains, had been pushed into a small room with somewhat rusty metal machines, which in their very nature stands in contrast to the outcome that takes shape in the space.
