New Yorker reviews Ilit Azoulay

GOINGS ON ABOUT TOWN: ART

ILIT AZOULAY

 

Azoulay, a photographer based in Tel Aviv, makes a big impact with little things. Her first U.S. solo exhibition includes a series of elaborately constructed still-life images of hundreds of small, cast-off objects arrayed on shelves, ledges, and hooks on white stucco walls, one of which is more than sixteen feet long. The precise placement of each bit of detritus—a shell, a found photo, a machine part—is accomplished through digital manipulation, as is the patchwork composition of the walls themselves. The space is a construct, a gallery within a gallery, for the display of an eccentric, absorbing cabinet of curiosities and the obsessive imagination that assembled it. Through Aug. 12.
