Work from Property.
“…The title Property refers to the Hollywood studio prop department. For Property, 2011, at Peres Projects’ Kreuzberg gallery, Israel has amassed a collection of sculptures culled from the thousands of readymade props available for rent at prop houses in Berlin and at the Babelsberg movie studio.
In the gallery, the props assume the role of sculpture: physical art objects to be experienced without the mediating barrier of the lens. At the exhibition’s close, Property will be dispersed: the rented props will return to their original sources and to being circulated through various on-camera jobs…” – Peres Projects
