“A tree falls in the forest where there is no living creature.
Does it make a sound?”
Going down the stairs into Chelouche Gallery lets the visitor into a fictitious environment of woodland. On the walls in a closed space with no windows, about 60 photos of trees hang.
Nurit Yarden creates a time-out in the noisy urban flow, and provides her viewer who lives in the city, with a natural environment which presumably reminds him of the real thing, and enables him to breathe.
The concept of time which is conveyed in the works emphasizes the difference between nature time which is cyclic, and human time, which is linear and final. But man often projects on nature his own finality and many of the trees in these photographs have been uprooted.
