Radiator Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Tracing The Fish Bladder. This group exhibition curated by Guy Goldstein, is exploring the boundaries of curatorial practice in acceptable ways. This is Goldstein's, an established Israeli sound and visual artist, attempt to explore the synergy between artist and curator role and the limitations of curatorial leeway. Goldstein is handling the curating project as his own personal artwork, using other artists' works as components in his equation. Thus, creating new relations as well as confrontations and connections by juxtaposing them his way. A diverse range of works, from video to painting, photography, performance, interactive projection and more, is transformed into a versatile installation.
The selection of works is similar to the curatorial approach, which leans on the graphic representation of the set theory (union and intersection sets) one of the fundamental operations through which sets are combined and related to each other.
