Our work The Others currently installed at Abrons Arts Center, for the show ___Families of Objects, curated by Marco Antonini. The projection is always on, and it’s visible from outside the gallery, so if you happen to be walking on the Lower East Side late at night in melancholic mood you’re welcome to stop by for a lonely view.

Long article by Neta Alexander on Haaretz about our work Dark Content. Some of our quotes read a bit strange, I guess it’s because of the translation (italo-english to hebrew and back to english…). Hebrew version is here.
Oh, and thanks Natan Dvir for his great photos!
