19.6 - 1.8.20
Givon Art Gallery Tel Aviv
Zach’s new solo show “BLACK FRIDAY” opened at Givon Art Gallery just when Corona virus crisis broke into our lives. The sculptures for the installation, created between 2016 and 2020, all relate to the disintegration of the body, and to issues of sterility and infection.
