Walls were talking differently

Friday, November 6th, 2009

Once the walls were talking differently (Exhibit by Ilan Goldstein)
Signs intended to say something; direct, warn, request, inform. Today most of the signs are machine produced. The signs have become more accurate, more alienated, more purposeful. In contrast, the signs can display various different techniques and materials, but all handmade. The exhibit on display on 7 Ruhama Street, Tel Aviv, the entrance way to the bike shop.
Signs are made by working with a brush or a tin kennel. Has a personal touch can move the speaker’s voice from behind the sign. The collection gives a perspective on the time when people spoke differently, spoke differently and companies spoke different signs.
Most signs were removed from the walls (just before they lowered the walls themselves), abandoned factories and buildings. This collection by Ilan Goldstein, is 20 years old. Among the signs Devices such as: “You can not turn on the neon sign at the rain” or “bicycle is not allowed here.”
