Alona Rodeh (1979 in Tel Aviv, Israel) creates large-scale, sometimes room-spanning installations that combine light, movement, and sound. Her art as a whole is fueled by her particular interest in the qualities of materials and objects that shape our visual environment—sometimes subtle and almost hidden, sometimes glaring and calling for attention. Often those are items in which aspects of security and visibility overlap. Fluorescent colors and reflective gear played and still play a central role in her works. In her latest productions, LED-elements, programmed for subtle choreographies by the artist, take center stage as new protagonists in her “performances without performers”.
Safe and Sound: The Third Dimension is a publication of an inherently hybrid nature. Published
on the occasion of Architecture of the Nights at Kunstpalais in Erlangen—Alona Rodeh’s first institutional solo exhibition in Germany—it functions as an exhibition catalog while at the same time it constitutes the third issue of Rodeh’s ongoing series of magazine-like, research-based artist publications titled Safe and Sound. The catalog features, among others, re-published historical texts, archive footage, advertisements, and scientific illustrations as well as newly commissioned contributions by external historians about the use of light and sound systems in nightclubs and the blackouts in Europe during World War II. Furthermore, a visual essay by Alona Rodeh traces the evolution of bollards in urban space over the course of more than five centuries.
