What We Wear was honored to attend the opening of international artist Grimanesa Amoros’ exhibit at Tel Aviv’s Litvak gallery.
The exhibit, titled Light Between the Islands, consists of installations of “islands” of bubble forms of various sizes with varying drawings imprinted on them.
The bubbles are arranged in modular units and layers scattered around the space with changing light scenes achieved by LED lighting that deeply change the feeling of each island of bubbles – from solid forms that seem to permanently occupy the space to floating ethereal bubbles. The reflective concrete floor of the gallery intensified the visual effects.
Visitors of the exhibit took an active part in it, walking around the islands and creating their own shadows in the space and changing their own appearance as the lighting changed.

We absolutely loved Amoros’ exquisite work and the play on lights and shadows and prints on different forms. The rhythmic organization of the forms in the space truly made us feel as if we were walking on dark water between islands of magical light.
The exhibit is currently on display at Litvak Gallery, a gallery with special focus on glass art. Litvak gallery has featured international glass artists such as Dale Chihuly, Howard Ben Tre and Vaclav Cigler, as well as other world renowned artists.

An additional exhibit on display at the gallery was Czechoslovakian artist Vaclav Cigler’s Spheres, part of his exhibit Light and Space. Cigler’s exhibit features geometric forms made from cut solid optical glass of various transparency and translucency.
What we always find interesting in these exhibits is how each visitor has their own take and perspective on the art. As fashion bloggers who have been disciplined in architecture, we saw the forms as beautiful jewels nesting on beautiful architectural structures.
Fashion imitates Art
Present at the opening were international artists such as Amoros herself and Israeli London-based designer/architect Ron Arad, whose works we have reported on in past posts.
To achieve classy looks we both chose modern LBDs for this opening. Here’s what we wore:
Vera wore a strapless bow tied taffeta dress with a leather jacket, black high heeled mary-janes, and print tights. Vera accessorized with gorgeous jewelry by one of our favorite local jewelry designers, Ariversa.
Rony wore a studded collar dress with a black cardigan, black tights and studded slipper flats. Rony accessorized with an oversized studded cream clutch and gold cuffs.
