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 harmonious and disharmonious, transforming the familiar into the unusual and creating a sense of expansion into a fantastic cinematic dimension.
