Ilit Azoulay, graduate of the Bezalel Academy, has earned critical and commercial acclaim, receiving awards such as the prestigious Tel Aviv Museum of Art Constantiner Photography Award for an Israeli Artist and Israel Museum Gerard Levy Prize for a Young Photographer. Another version of the present work, in the panorama format and measuring 150 by 1000 cm., is in the collection of the Centre Pompidou, Paris. Azoulay created the work, in part, by carefully composing photographed objects collected from buildings marked for demolition in south Tel Aviv into a digital collage, where superficially familiar articles become abstracted through their placement, scale and manipulation. The title of these work is a play on the word “roommate”.
