The Schmooze

Step Into the Light

Crossposted from Haaretz

It’s not quite clear whether Yanai Toister’s new show is a photography exhibition without any photos or a photo exhibition without any photography. Now on display at Dvir Gallery in Tel Aviv, Toister’s latest effort is the result of thoughts that have occupied him for several years now, about the way architecture and color integrate, and the formalism of photography.

The invitation to the show features an overhead view of a textbook, opened to a page with several graphs, placed atop a marble background. The book’s title, “The Keepers of Light,” inspired the name of Toister’s exhibition, “Keepers of the Light.” But neither the name or accompanying photo offer even a hint of what visitors will discover at the show.
