‘Michal Rovner: Evolution’
In 2016, the Israeli photographer, sculptor, filmmaker and video artist Michal Rovner showed a series of pictures of jackals taken in fields at night. Those images—one of which accompanies Tim Flannery’s review in the April 5 issue—were put on display at Pace New York. Another nocturnal image of a jackal, this time in a large video piece, is one of the central attractions at Rovner’s new Pace exhibition in Palo Alto, which in the gallery’s words suggests this wide-ranging artist’s return to abstraction: “The human ﬁgures have lost basic contours, to the point that their humanity is sometimes hard to identify; gone are the landscapes in which the ﬁgures move; the movement itself, which apparently repeats itself, has become more wild; the lines, structures and patterns change more rapidly; ﬂorescent-like red ﬂashes appear, that call to mind the emergency, danger and alarm lights that permeate our world.”
