TAMY BEN-TOR & MIKI CARMI - Disembodied Archetypes -  Courtesy of Zach Feuer Gallery, NY

NEW YORK, NY.- Zach Feuer Gallery, in
conjunction
with Stefan Stux Gallery and Salon 94, present Disembodied Archetypes, a

two-person exhibition of new performances and videos by Tamy Ben-Tor and
new
paintings and photographs taken by Miki Carmi. All of the works in this
exhibition are bound by a series of photographs and texts that embody
the
dialectic of the archetypical and the concrete.
Neither the
grotesque
proportions of these heads nor the idiotic manner of these performances
imitate
life. Rather they aim to imitate the dynamic of thought. The mind’s
conception
of reality, like a warped mirror in a circus booth, could reflect, as in
these
works, an irrational, absurd reality and yet a true one in that it is
how the
mind perceives. On view through 1 May, 2010.
