To create a Proposals for Disorder project Israeli visual artist Liat Elbling make models on her table and eventually photograph them.
This action allows Liat to touch on and generate discussions in different disciplines and delve into subjects that preoccupy her, such as architecture and its components, as well as the notion of "home" have a predominant presence in her works.
"For these series I construct and compose models in my studio. I employ various materials: wood, MDF, plaster, Styrofoam, cardboard, and paper, painting each "set" in a solid color, which is also manifested in the printing and framing process. Through these procedures, i return to art’s basic characteristics: perspective, light and shade,
exam the relationship between two-dimensionality and three-dimensionality, and encounters between materials, colours and textures. Then I stage them in minimalist compositions and capture them with my camera. By this process I return to art’s basic characteristics: perspective, light and shade, exam the relationship between two-dimensionality and three-dimensionality, and an encounter between materials, colours and textures.
I wish to explore principles which are prevalent in photography – creating a replica in relation to the original, visual deceptions and disruption of space – also I am fascinated by how we can, briefly, simply forget about the photograph," says Liat in her statement.
