Gallery Opening: Thursday, January 23, 2014 at 20:00

Over the three levels of the pavilion Klasmer creates few distinct experiences exploring some of his diverse activities and interests.

'I want this show to be experienced as a GROUP SHOW of one person'

One floor is dedicated to Klasmer's paintings in a dense and didactic survey, where painting is exploring the ground between abstraction and figuration, researching the monochrome as an analog act within the digital sphere.

(Hence the title - EFES / 1 - (zero / 1))

Another floor will be a display of sculptures ('the Sculpture Park') making use of cheap domestic and common materials, compressed and formed to shapes of the human figure, of body parts, impossible and ironic reminiscence of the early modernists sculptures.

If the Sculpture Park is about compression (of material) the third level is about inflation, expansion, of large scale air bubbles, membrane and atmosphere, an experience of scale of fragility of large volume held by almost nothing - of air itself .

The show will include the screening of a joint project by Gabriel and Shira Klasmer, a 3D video exploring time and space - 'Out of Thin Air'.

A selection of early years painting will as well be shown.
