Curated by Artis research trip alum Nicola Trezzi, Eva and Emerick was Yael Efrati’s most comprehensive solo exhibition to date and included both existing and new pieces specially produced for this occasion. Efrati conducted research in Romania, integrating her personal and familial ties to Romania into her artistic practice. The show, vacillating between photography and sculpture, focused on the impact of light in both media, specifically how the sun can “burn” an imprint onto objects. The time that such a process takes and the imprint left mark the passing of time and speak to the physical and metaphysical mutability of memory itself.
