The Atlas Group (1989-2004) - A Project by Walid Raad

The Elsewhereness No. 47 / June 11-17 10 / 

Document title: Notebook volume 72: Missing Lebanese Wars Fakhouri  Notebooks 1989 

According to Raad, all the major historians of the Lebanese wars were gamblers. Every Sunday they met at the race track and gambled not on the winning horse, but on the exact fraction of a second that the photographer exposed his frame before or after the horse crossed the finish line. Each page in the Missing Lebanese Wars notebook thus combines three forms of information: a photograph of the winning horse, Dr. Fakhouri’s notations on the race distance and duration, and a textual description by the winning historian.

The International Airport of Jerusalem, Present and Past: Sasha Eidelman and Nahed Awwad

During the research fo Sasha Eidelman's "Last call for passengers on flight" exhibition, we have watched a documentary by Nahed Awwad called "5 Minutes from Home", that had opened the first International Biennial of Qalandiya a year ago.

 - In her film Awwad recovered the history of the airport using private stills archives and personal memories of flight attendants, pilots, travel agents and travelers, from the days when the airport was active and you could take off to destinations in the Arab world and Europe.

עצה קטנה תתקבל בברכה גדולה: אילו יחסי גומלין אפשריים במערכת בת שלושה סוגי אלמנטים? תודה על תשומת הלב, יוסי

מערכת דימויים - מודל 3 סוגי אלמנטים: תמונות, היגדים ודימויים. כפי שניתן לראות, פרטי כל סוג יכולים להיקשר בינם לבין עצמם או עם פרטי כל סוג אחר; למשל: תמונה עם תמונה, תמונה עם היגד, תמונה עם דימוי (וכיו"ב לגבי היגדים ודימויים). המיקוד שלי הוא בעיקר במקרה של דימוי הקושר תמונה והיגד

משמש בתעשיית off-grain fabric המונח הטקסטיל לתיאור טעות בטוויית בדים כך שחוטי השתי וערב אינם ארוגים בזווית ישרה זה לזה, וכן בהלבשה, לתיאור בדים אשר הדוגמה המודפסת עליהם נמצאת בסטייה, לעתים מכוונת, לכיוון החוטים

בין אם מדובר ב"מתפרת העצמאות" במצפה רמון, נופי הכרך, העמק והחוף או הכפר הנטוש, ובין אם באובייקטים דוממים בסביבתם הטבעית, משהו בשייכות ובהתאמה שלהם למקומם אינו עובד


Curb Stone / Oded Shimshon 

to the video


דימויי המקומות והאנשים נושאים עמם את גרעין התוכן העצמאי שלהם ללא זיקה של ממש לסיטואציית המפגש איתם. אגב כך "נפרמים" קצוות הסיפור שאנו רגילים לייחס להם, וכוח העדות של הצילום, במקום שיאשר את ממשותם, מעמיד בספק את דבר היותם שם


Preservation / Sigal Ben David 


The term off-grain fabric, in the textile industry, is associated with appropriating an (un)-deliberate weaving disorder so as to disrupt the right angel grid of weft and warp. It is also an aspect of designing printed garment that disobey weave pattern and direction.


Noa Gur Arie


Throughout this group exhibition the general overview is one of progression that is off the "main beat and truck" direction and off audience expectation. Starting with work to do with the “Sewing Workshop” at Mitzpe-Ramon through landscapes and cityscape work or to do with found and fabricated still life, the general feel is one of disrupted coherency.


Under-Above / Yudit Ilany

The expected reliable fabric of the traditional “photo real-story” started being unpicked and un-stitched at the disjointed margin of our reality here.
