TRIUMPH of SLOGGI, 2019
Michal Bachi, Matti Harel, Gilad Ophir
BALKONT, Tel Aviv.
Installation view: Avi Amsalem, Bar flesch.
A three-person affair is giving voice to a fourth entity: this exhibition.
Over a span of two years in which Bachi, Harel, and Ophir were meeting, a strange manner evolved, allowing their artworks time for acquaintance.
By providing expanse and common ground, the process enabled them to share characteristics and origins in materiality and praxis, making sense and abandoning it simultaneously.
The Triumph of Sloggi is a declaration of triumph and delight in the vulnerable and incoherent.
