mitterand + cramer  present ‘geotectonic’, an exhibition featuring the work of french-israeli designer arik levy. the show follows this idea of the ‘natural non-natural’. it investigates the imaginary, concepts of ‘parallel’ and ‘opposed’… presenting these ideas for the first time, the show illustrates various forms of expression related to geotectonic. arik’s perception of such levels is not only geological, but also emotional, visual, social, architectural, as well as urban and genetic.

‘what I feel and see are complete images of objects, buildings, mountain splitting into layers the same way an iceberg will detach from the north pole creaking open and starting drifting in the space. each element slides over the other in perfect harmony of total chaos. construct to deconstruct, built to destroy, and constantly being on the borderline between balance and in balance, stability and catastrophe, magic and power.’ – arik levy

the works on show include levy’s films, sculptures, photographs, objects etc… representing a kind of ‘x-ray’ of a fraction in the trail of transition to these masses in space. masses which float without any signs of movement. this notion of visual expression will remain an unwritten formula that can be applied on any moment and environment around us. there are surfaces with no beginning and no end, slicing themselves into uneven sections and commencing the lateral slide.
