Sculptor Brigitte Nahon is a French-trained artist who lives and works in Tel Aviv. Her work investigates what she describes as precious moments of balance between tradition and modernity. To pursue her quest for perfect balance between paradoxes such as fragility and solidity, heaviness and lightness, emptiness and fullness, air and water, she uses a wide vocabulary of materials, colors and textures. In the present sculpture, the transparent "column" of ethereal pink veils resembles a cut-away section of a building, while curls of sheer cloth and wisps of thread suggest human interactions in intimate domestic spaces. Unlike most sculptures, it is designed to be suspended and weightless, and also easily collapsed and transported at will into an entirely new environment.
Estimate: $4,000 - $6,000.
