THE WHITE CITY
OPENING 05.10.23, 8PM
October 5 – December 23, 2023
Sommer Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv
For his new exhibition, Hildebrandt primarily works with near-obsolete relics of recording technology – VHS tapes, cassettes, and vinyl records – to create sculptures, paintings and installations. This choice of medium reflects his passion for music, which accompanies him at every stage of creation.
The interplay between silence and sound is one of many opposing forces that permeate Hildebrandt’s body of work, embracing the visible and the invisible, the positive and negative. While many artworks within the exhibition have a negative black version, For “The White City” marks a departure from Hildebrandt’s usual duality. In this exhibition he displays only the predominantly white versions – a tribute to Tel Aviv’s White City.
