Peter Greenaway's visit at Chelouche Gallery

Peter Greenaway's visit at Chelouche Gallery

Peter Greenaway | Heavy Water

Open: 22.10.11 – 03.12.11

World famous British filmmaker and artist Peter Greenaway is launching his world première of the new, spectacular project Heavy Water, a multimedia project by Change Performing Arts, especially planned and modeled for Chelouche Gallery’s unique exhibit halls.
Heavy Water, Greenaway’s new project at Chelouche Gallery, is a theatrical and dramatic mix of sound, painting, drawing and video, accompanied by the issue of an art book. It elicits apocalyptic thoughts and contains an ostensibly prophetic warning concerning nuclear proliferation and the future of our planet. Obtained by an artificial process, heavy water is used as coolant and moderator in nuclear reactors. The melting of icebergs is likewise caused by human intervention in nature. These two catastrophes—of fire and water—threaten to strike before long.

On the occasion of Greenaway’s visit, several cultural events were planned concurrent with the exhibition at Chelouche Gallery, including a lecture and discussion followed by a screening of his film The Pillow Book at the Tel Aviv Cinematheque; special meetings with curators and cultural figures; And a gallery talk with selected students from Hamidrasha School of Art.

Chelouche Gallery has chosen to celebrate the first anniversary at its new location with this innovative project which implements the Gallery’s vision to host special site-specific projects. The exhibition marks the culmination of an ongoing collaboration between Peter Greenaway and Nira Itzhaki, the Gallery’s curator and owner. Heavy Water was produced by Change Performing Arts, Milan; and with the support of the British Council in Israel; and the British Outset Contemporary Art Fund.
