Pharynx / Shai Tzvi Horodi

Role Graphic Designer
For Studio Michal Sahar
Date January 2015 
Type Print Design
Edit and design of a manual/gallery page for the Shai Tzvi Harodi: Pharynx exhibition, curated by Ellen Ginton at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.
Three short, silent video works from the artist’s performative oeuvre. Each video could be said to document a transformative process of digestion, of metabolism taking place within the pharynx -- here the change occurs.  Inspired by patient package insert (information brochure), a thin sheet, folded into the smallest an most efficient form, offering a single language on each side:  Hebrew an English.
