SPOTLIGHT

Nir Adoni

One of the key features of his work is an in-depth analysis of architectural characteristics. He believes the space around us dictates our approach and our understanding of the world. By using laser cutting, digital media, sound and light, his work attempts to discuss the questions that architecture raises, such as scale, existing in space and the tension between man and his environment.

Mixed cities, war zones, religious temples, massive industrial zones, places with rich history and architecture – these places, which create an almost impossible mixture, become the central subjects of his exploration.

Adoni studies the new connections that are created by the different forces in his personal surroundings and in the world, and isolates features and images from those surroundings and turn them into raw materials for his work. In the studio he dismantles them, distills them and recreates environments that have new connections and contexts. This process results in new objects and environments that often contain the potential of tension, fear, violence and destruction.
