political power in paperwork

December 26, 2016

We have just visited a lovely yet very interesting photo art exhibition with Taryn Simon at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art . This is her latest photo art series in which she highlights the systems humans has created to exhibit power and  control.

She examines floral centerpieces from major international conferences and treats them as silent witnesses of historical moments. She makes them her protagonists, and through them Taryn Simon can give the story of international power relations, manipulations and broken promises.

Each photograph and flower has its own story and those are being presented on the right in the mahogny frame. (The choice of material represents the board room in which the agreements has been taken).
