Two Sided — Artspace Tel-Aviv (2017)


Curator: Nir Harmat

Lili Cohen Prah-Ya’s cluster of works “Two-Sided” relates to the unusual material on which the works were rendered, as well as their contents. The works were painted on a unique “paper-fabric” originally intended to be used for shoe-soles. Work on this substance yielded paintings which may be viewed on either side of the surface, hence “two-sided.” This body of work oscillates between the abstract and the figurative. It introduces a large-scale female portrait, a figure that likewise verges on the abstract, eliciting questions about its fluid identity.
