Idan Sitbon's works stem from a sense of concern, lack of anchorage, and levitation. In the body of works presented in the exhibition, Sitbon discloses a thought process which deals with questions of ground and gravity.
A sunset-like lighting accompanies the prints, and the images presented take place in nowhere - in the air, in the space between heaven and earth where all the colors and particles are scattered and passed through. The artist tries to examine his own way of observing things and tries - unsuccessfully - to catch the aforementioned floating "particles".
All the prints in the exhibition were created with an attempt to rise above the gravitation of the printing process. The airiness of the prints resembles the childhood memory of reaching your hand out of a driving car’s window and feeling as if catching the air were possible; and when looking at them, you discover that they can be touched by a glance.
