The Art of Social Distancing
Museums and galleries across the world have been shutting their doors In mid-March 2020. The public was called on Social distancing, warned to avoid non-essential contact with others. these strong measures were taken in tackling the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
I photographed these images during the lockdown at the Tel Aviv Museum. I had found empty spaces, dimmed with rays of natural light. masterpieces illuminated faintly, and iconic statues wrapped in protective covers.
The look at these astounding spaces, with its new and odd appearance, made the familiar and known become awkward and strange.
Classic art pieces got different meaning with its protective covers, and historic objects in the current installations gained a kind of conceptual context.
