recipient of the 2011 Constantiner Photography Award, Ilit Azoulay's
images engage concepts of deconstruction, reconstruction, salvage, and
on a greater plane inspire reflection on modern life, even lifestyle.
The final product is the result of much work and many images- objects
are collected and scanned before being reconfigured digitally against a
white wall, which has also been photographed in many sections. The
rigid structure of the process is important as it invests elements with a
sense of modern archaeology. Collected objects are stripped of their
function and tidied- chipped paint reapplied, oil cleaned, and so on
before they are divided, categorized, named and finally recorded. The
final works are playful and elegantly ordered collections. We find
ourselves looking for lines between elements, for commonalities and
differences among the fragments.
