Turning Point 5
Raw Art Gallery, Tel-Aviv, 2012
Curator: Noga Davidson
"Dana Darvish creates collages from digital ready-mades which raise questions about intellectual property in the digital era. Dealing with the subject of consuming digital images is seemingly opposed to the nostalgic appearance of the portraits in the works. Their visual reference to the surrealist collage creates a context of defined and disassembled identities. Opposed to the modernistic- humanistic outlook of the early 20th century, Darvish's collages may be seen as de-mystified versions of the self, presenting it as the sum of the different fragments one is exposed to, as a product of its surroundings."
