About

A new periodic photographic exhibition of the internationally recognized and multi-awarded Greek-Israeli architecture and landscape photographer Erieta Attali, entitled "Woodscapes / Erieta Attali on Kengo Kuma", will be presented from June 16, 2023 at the premises of the Byzantine & Christian Museum.


The exhibition focuses on the wooden architectural works of Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, located from the most remote parts of Japan to the center of the city of Paris.

Erieta Attali's photographic projects are developed with a multitude of images and many years of -often- dedication to the same subject. The exhibition, through a selection of fifteen photographs, is a distillation of the essential personal dialogue with architecture.

Unlike commercial photography, which captures designed objects for consumption in the context of a constant competition and is therefore produced-distributed under the shadow of an imaginary expiration date, Attali's art is born out of the whole work of a single designer, always trying to approach the atmosphere, the essence and the reshaped from project to project central idea of ​​the conception.

In a span of more than a quarter of a century, among the few relationships that photographer Attali formed, none were more mutual than the one with Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, as the fusion of designed space and environment is a shared goal of architect and photographer.

Combining the engineering and construction feat of uninterrupted, massive glass surfaces with innovative interpretations of traditional Japanese wooden architecture, Kengo composes spaces that refer both visually and experientially to the changing values ​​of the natural environment. His works pulsate in an almost supernatural resonance with Attali's photographic practice. Through the glass lenses of her analog cameras, she seeks out and captures the permeability of the natural and man-made environment, fusing the hard and reflective surfaces into multi-layered images filled with the atmosphere of the very essence of Kuma's architectural art.
