Organized by Consulate General of Israel in Guangzhou and Redtory Culture and Art Organization, the exhibition ‘Made in Israel’ will be held from June 1 through July 24 at Redtory Museum of Contemporary Art.



The "Made in Israel" exhibition is the result of looking at the totality known as China, the one of the oldest cultures in the world. The rich multi-dimensional traditions are present in all walks of life, particularly those of the spirit and the creative-in literature, poetry and art. On the end of the 19th century and early 20th century, the Israeli culture became particularly interested in The Book of Tao, which has been translated into Hebrew six times.

In the last few decades, China's identity has become imprinted in the minds around the globe as a commercial trade-mark known as "Made in China".

This exhibition begs to offer a different perspective regarding this term, which can be seen in the works of four contemporary Israeli artists, Maya Attoun, Nir Harel, Hila Toony Navok and Irit Tamari. This exhibition examines the power of art and the individual as opposed to mass industrialization and mass marketing.



Maya Attoun’s drawing, etchings and sculpture move around the idea of a line. Her work, Lover’s Eye, is based upon miniature drawing from the 18th century, which described one eye of a beloved partner.



The decisive moment in Nir Harel’s work occurs between the spectator-observer at this exhibition.

In his work ‘Parasitic Wear’, Harel created a series of wearable picture, made from computer drawings printed on material. These works of arts are hanging on the gallery wall, and the visitors are invited to take them down and wrap them around their bodies.



In her work, Hilla Toony Navok examines relationshops and connections between the two-dimensional and three-dimensional, between drawing and the object. For example, the point of departure of her work, ‘Swarmed Unites’, is sketches for a calendar.

Irit Tamari’s works are characterized by cutting, interweaving and gluing of photographs, with which she creates installations, sculptures and pictures. Her two works, which appear in this exhibition, were inspired by a lengthy period during which she lived in China and became acquainted with the local culture, the people and the landscape.
