Kontrapunkt # 3:
At the borders of the Known: the Uncanny

Iris Erez presents three strangers in an undefined, constantly changing space. Helpless, they seek ways to deal with an indefinite threat.

Michaël Borremans places in his works mysterious figures in ambiguous states. His images are revealed to the viewer with a disturbing chord, exposing absurd and melancholic situations.

Both artists sketch a terrifying sense of tension, an alienness experienced within the familiar. This is the human experience that exists between the known and the obscure, which Freud termed the "uncanny" (Unheimlich).

Evening program:
19:30 – "As Sweet as it Gets", exhibition by Michaël Borremans
20:30 – "Homesick", dance performance by Iris Erez
21:00 – "Home as a philosophical concept", lecture by Professor Hagi Kenaan
