Moshe Ninio’s first solo show in Berlin at NBA features three main works: Morgen (2010-2015), Hole/Patch (1991/2009) and Dauerwelle (2018) a new commissioned work.

In Moshe Ninio’s oeuvre, each cycle of works includes different states of the same image assembled according to a certain scheme. The image in this body of work is always suspended or subtly modified in order to return as a sealed meta-image of itself. The transformation that the images undergo both exposes their inner construction and elevates them. They are put into a closed circuit that keeps them forever caught between insignificance and the mythic or even the sublime.
