Ariel Schlesinger, born 1980 in Jerusalem, Israel, studied from 1999 to 2003 at the Bezalel Academy for Art and Design in Jerusalem.
He turns daily products of consumption into rare and surreal objects. By “transformation” and “damage” of domestic accessories, Schlesinger creates a world of poetical imagery, combining household objects and simple technology in order to create absurd acts.
He makes works of exquisite detail and subtlety as sculptures and installations. Ordinary objects or situations are altered by the addition of an unexpected material or circumstance, creating small ruptures in the fabric of our everyday reality. Alternating between the objects functions such as in the bicycle work where the wheels of a bicycle are filled with butane gas, which is slowly released as a flame from the wheel’s air intake. Two pieces of white paper rotate against each other on a table without ever collapsing in an eternal mechanical dance. Huge Oriental carpets are rolled up and burnt over a fire for many hours, and then unfurled in the gallery as an eerily mesmerizing ‘painting’ or process work. Ariel’s works suggest many contexts and situations including the tensions of his native region, but never dwell on this alone.
