me think if really had one.
The journey begins with finding signs, small ones: you can investigate them in tenderproduct’s window from the 11th of August.
The strangeness of a thumb-magnet that holds a label with an image, or a word that wants to be used by a person who lost the possibility of speaking. Language often refers to what the eyes can see while being oblivious to the invisible worlds around us. Contemplating the possibility of losing one’s own voice creates a whole new possibility of communicating without using the tool of vocal articulation. Timen’s installation challenge’s our assumption of the everyday use of objects and ability to communicate beyond our visual vocabulary.
Do I wish to solve the problem?
Like riding on a bike, the body does not forget its own language and works for you even if you don’t wish to.
The shop will feature evidence of Timen’s experimentation, materialized in thumbs/hooks with labels in limited edition as part of the installation, as well as tote bags.
Timen is also part of Minor Revisions, an exhibition curated by Marina Kassianidou taking place from 11 August to 3 September 2011 at Tenderpixel Gallery. In this group show, Timen explores found objects -toys in this case. Her intervention involves a simple, humorous response to the object that somehow alters its initial significance. She is a conceptual artist and a curator with a sense of humour. She has showed her work in New York, London and Tel Aviv. She holds a BA degree in Literature from Tel Aviv University and in 2005 she received an MA in Fine Arts from Central Saint Martins in London. She lives and works in Tel Aviv.
