Neither Day Nor Night 2013

In the darkened -1 floor of the Helena Rubinstein Pavilion of Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv Museum, Rodeh installed a low and wide chess-patterned wooden stage, with a reflective pleated curtain located at its far end. A tuba adaptation of Erik Satie’s 1888 popular composition Gymnopédie #1, originally composed for piano, emanates from the loudspeakers set into the floor, synchronized with changing lights. The result is both harmonious and disharmonious, transforming the familiar into the unusual and creating a sense of expansion into a fantastic cinematic dimension.
