DAYING is a verb;
it describes life through the many mundane activities that take
place everyday. The day in question, 27th February 2003, a random
anyday, becomes the common ground that connects the work of the
three artists involved in DAYING.
DAYING is a single collaborative work formed from three separate
versions of a single day. Each artist speaks of her own experience
of a day in her life, which is shared with the others only because
they too experience that day.
In the gallery, the work is displayed as a time line, revealing
the minutia of the three everyday routines. The work of each individual
artist expands across the time line as connections, differences
and similarities occur.
In Martina Jennes
work the camera is held in two positions, capturing what she sees,
and at the same time turning in on herself to capture herself looking.
The camera thus becomes the eye of the world transferring images
as they are seen by others. These images become photographic installations,
theatrically constructed and staged in the gallery, creating relationships
and tensions between their various elements.
Isabel Ivarss work has transformed over the last two years
from meticulous paintings of introspective grids to video and photography.
She has transferred her gaze away from herself now examining how
this inner world exists and manifests itself in the wider world
around her. Her work traces a path between the poetic of the everyday
and the fantasy of the rational.
Sharone Lifschitz often travels without a destination. Her work
speaks of her experiences creating and following situations that
enable her to meet, exist and interact with infrastructures, places,
people, and cultures. Working in between photography and text, she
empties her photographs of individual meaning and writes about events
and non-events as they actually happened. She then uses the two,
to tell a story, allowing the spectator to undergo a journey and
grasp the nature of the experience as his own
