‘Wall Piece’ is a site-specific projection installation occurring in the space between Artport’s resident Dor Zlekha Levy’s studio and the wall of a building viewed from his window. Over the past few months, the artist photographed the wall under different lighting conditions, compiled the photographs and processed them digitally.
The complex, layered images that were created are projected back onto the wall from the studio’s window. The neglected wall, which stands completely dark during the night, is then exposed through the projection. Its central formative elements – the window frame, the remains of dripping white wall paint, the peeling plaster, the crumbling bricks, the plastic tubes – are also repeated in the projected images, creating a range of optical illusions.
In a feedback loop, the wall resonates itself and becomes infinite, a prolific ground for artistic action and a new perspective, which reconfigures the familiar urban space.
The piece will be projected every Thursday, from June 25th to September 3rd, between 8:30pm and 10:30pm, Artport’s entrance, Ha’Manor/ Ha’Amal.

The work practise of Katharina Schücke evolves around the question of what constitutes an image today, in a time with constant overload of information and imagined desires through media. Her interests lies in identites, bodies and the shaping of both. Such as first and foremost the internet, where the background less and less frequently rises through the shining surfaces, she collects imagery from to create expressive drawings through collage.
Schückes work practise includes to also foster colaborations with further experts. After organising ephemeral exhibitions in hotel rooms called Soft Walls Become Water wwww, an intensive collective work has developed since 2016, she has been working as part of artist collective HazMatLab intensively. In sharing knowledge, supporting individual expertise and gaining knowledge in their experiment-based sculptural work with Sandra Havlicek and Tina Kohlmann HazMatLab pushes forward the boundaries of the perception of contemporary art practise. See interview on artfridge for some details.
Georg Keller is an artist and theater director born 1981 in Zug, Switzerland. He lives and works in Zurich and Warsaw. Keller studied Visual Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zürich and Warsaw (2002-2008).
In his work, Keller mainly focuses on the structures and functions of a globalized world and the effects it causes humans. He developed an artistic language, loosely following the postmodern theory of performative science by Jean-Francois Lyotard; performance in the sense of an artistic action and also as economic earnings. This allows him to introduce new narrations and perspectives on economic matters. Keller founded his own company, “Georg Keller Unternehmungen a brand like a friend”, which he uses as a source for artistic research on economics and inscenisation. His works have been shown in many museums in Switzerland and all over Europe. In recent years, he also started showing his work in theaters, where he develops his own plays.
