In his new exhibition Shahar Kornblit deals with the passing and the hopeless desire to preserve what is destined to disappear. Kornblit's delicate and minor works describe objects that are in the process of disintegration and dissipation, or are themselves remnants of destroyed objects. Burned flags, drawings by the artist he himself burned, and broken paving stones he collected during the artist's stay in Paris. All these are intertwined into a quiet, gentle but chilling lament. A lament for something that has passed and no longer exists.

Although the exhibition opened last week, we still recommend going to the Yair Art Gallery and experiencing it.
