Light Reading’s ninth series continues with a dialogue between London- based artist Yaron Lapid and curator Gaia Tedone. Lapid will present a series of recent works including Night Meter (2000), Casual Mechanisms (2007), Terms & Conditions Apply (2007) The New Zero (2007) and Arcadia, Downtown (2008.)

Yaron Lapid’s work is about himself as much as it is about others. Whether they are people marginalised from society, his closest colleagues or complete strangers does not influence the spontaneity of his approach to them. The camera is his tool to go beyond the physical and psychological boundaries which affect human interactions and to explore the most extreme conditions of living. Through the careful process of editing, reality gets closely examined and new narratives start to emerge. Lapid’s work is invested in the search of the forgotten place, the unheard voice, the untold narrative. (Gaia Tedone)

Yaron Lapid lives and works in London. He completed his MFA at Goldsmith’s College in 2007. His work has been shown extensively. Selected exhibitions include “Laptopia”, Bat Yam Museum, Israel, 2009 “Einfuhlung x 5” Kayma Gallery, Tel Aviv, Israel 2008, “I’m Keeping an Eye on You” Miami Video Project Space at Aqua Art Fair, USA, 2008, “New Work UK: Trust Yourself” Whitechapel Gallery, 2007, “Creekside Open (prize winner) ” APT Gallery, London 2007. Forthcoming projects include, “Nervous System” James Taylor Gallery, London, 2009 and the “Herzeliya Biennale” Herzeliya Museum, Israel, 2009.

Gaia Tedone is a curator based in London. Her projects reflect an interest in transnational studies and the impact of geographical and psychological displacement in today's curatorial and artistic practices. Since 2007, she has completed several curatorial projects in London and abroad including “Every Story Is A Travel Story” Candid Arts Trust, London, 2008. She co-founded the curatorial collective IM Projects in 2007 and is currently assistant curator at the David Roberts Art Foundation, London.
