Tuesday 17 April | Tamar Harpaz spoke with curator Laurence Sillars on the occaision of Harpaz's exhibition at Edel Assanti, Crazy Delay.
Tamar Harpaz currently lives and works in Amsterdam and Tel Aviv. Hapaz works with optical devices and cinematic mechanisms, often using the unique characteristics of aging visual technologies to prolong their expiration date. Bringing machines to the point of malfunction, she uses that failure as a driving force in her work to create installations that ponder illusion and memory.
Laurence Sillars is Head of Exhibitions at the Henry Moore Foundation. Sillars has curated and overseen more than 150 exhibitions including major international solo shows with Lorna Simpson, Jim Shaw, Robert Breer, Bruce Nauman, co-curated three Liverpool Biennials and two Turner Prize exhibitions as well as experimental projects with emerging artists.
'Tamar Harpaz: Crazy Delay' was on view at Edel Assanti from the 21st of March until the 21st of April, 2018.
