Singalovsky is this year’s winner of the Lauren and Mitchell Presser Photography Award for a Young Israeli Artist, which includes a grant and a solo exhibition at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art in 2020.
The judges noted that “Eli Singalovski creates a typological photographic research that charts the heritage of modern Brutalist architecture, of post-war architecture in Eastern Bloc countries, in Germany and in Israel. Through photography he examines complex urban processes that took place in Israel and in Europe following WWII, among them the ever-growing polarization between East and West and the urgent need for rebuilding constructions for institutions and for living accommodation. Singalovski photographs buildings at night, using long exposure, in dramatic black-and-white and centered compositions that capture the whole structure. He isolates the photographed buildings from their environment and neutralizes ‘distractions’ and interferences, in order to focus the viewer’s gaze on the façade of the architectural object, with its plethora of details against black, opaque skies. The choice to use this method of photography emphasizes the buildings’ monumentality and plasticity and features them as sculptural presences in the expanse, without human figures, whose absence is one component in a rich utterance of alienation in the modern contemporary era.”Read More >>
