Catalogue Note

This work is part of a series of works Sharabani executed examining the structures from villages around Jerusalem. Sharabani symbolically illustrates the experience of viewing the landscape from afar, shimmering in the distance, and then moving in closer until at a certain point, the idealized image collapses aesthetically and transforms into a series of gritty individual buildings. In Real Estate Candies, Sharabani collects each building from a whole village and puts them into a candy jar, treating them as a collector’s item, a treat. Sharabani has exhibited internationally, worked in the fields of fine art and digital effects, and in 2006 was awarded the Cannes Gold Lion Prize, for creative commercial. Works by the artist, including works on the theme illustrated here, will be included in an upcoming solo exhibition, Ronen Sharabani: Snap to Grid, at the Nahum Gutman Museum of Art in Tel Aviv.
