Hilla Toony Navok: Through the Window

Recipient of the Rappaport Prize for a Promising Israeli Artist, 2020

Hilla Toony Navok uses industrial materials and everyday objects to generate a subversive, humorous gaze at the design of the Israeli urban space, while fusing the aesthetics of modernism and its incarnations with its local manifestations. Shopping centers, apartment buildings, and neighborhoods of single-family homes (Bne Beitkha) built in the 1980s and 1990s between Hadera and Ashdod are some of the spaces from which she draws inspiration. In the current exhibition, Navok presents new video and sculptural works, which transpire in the liminal spaces on the border between interior and exterior, the private and the public. Physical gestures of infiltration, breaking in, or splitting, which she performs on the façades of commercial buildings or in lobbies to apartment buildings, may be construed as attempts to hack the system or as forms of resistance and breaching of peace
