Claustrophobia My Love
       
     
 Adi Levy presents his first solo exhibition, including an installation of large dimensions urban landscapes photographed from the intimacy of his apartment, accompanied by a sound work. Levy's work deals with the elusive border between the desire for a threatening public sphere and the false security of the domestic territory.
       
     
 In his installation, Levy distills the possibility of pleasure from the asphyxiation (Intimate Claustrophobia) by transforming the gallery into a view point that allows a peek, seemingly risk-free, of what is going on out there, while slowly imposing an acute sense of absence.
       
     
  The darkness of the apartment, a building seen through the blinds and the obscure answering machine messages form an intimate experience that evokes a dissonant sense of dim sentimentality, anxiety and passion.
