For the past decade, Sharon Ya’ari has described a melancholy state of tension between the ideal and the real. His photography is a scant remnant of the history it describes, with a choice of “small,” almost marginal histories that express the physical and human components of the Israeli locus. The photographs reconstruct a private moment of concentration; an observation seeking to expose and reconstruct traces of action, the way things are placed and accumulated. In Ya’ari’s most recent photographs, representing a kind of archaeology of Being, the viewers seem to participate in a constant transformation of space and time. www.tamuseum.org.il
