Luxury and status symbols are the focus of Harel Luz’s show “For the rich” at the Midarsha gallery in Tel Aviv.

Harel Luz

Luz reproduce those objects from scratch, using paper, cardboard and plaster  -  New Balance shoe, Gucci penny loafer or expensive boot – while on the wall  he hangs paintings of Rolex watch or famous rich people from Israel.

Harel Luz

The show questions issues like luxury, art, consumerism and capitalism. What is art? what is luxury? and what politics has to do with it? walking in the gallery reminds the Garconniere walking in rue Saint Honore in Paris, looking at objects of desire (or looking at the people who buy it) and feeling frustrated.

Harel Luz

Is reproducing the object a successful attempt of making it accessible? and if it’s accessible, is it luxury still?
