Safe & Sound Evolutions (Grimmuseum)  2015

"Always fully inhabiting the spaces Alona Rodeh works in, the relatively domestic nature of Grimmuseum allowed Rodeh to shift from her monolithic large-scale works into more detailed object-based techniques and elements. The exhibition includes a group of pseudo-figurative sculptures which form together a “family” of inter-related representatives of social mobility. These are supported by staged, photographed images, taken from the Safe and Sound Poster series. In the heart of the exhibition lies a discreet video piece, which introduces a staged mental state of absorbing and being absorbed as a parallel channels of communication. 
The left wing of Grimmuseum is dedicated to presenting and unfolding the Safe and Sound Deluxe Edition, a new artist publication tackling in different manners the history of high-visibility clothing, fire regulations in architecture, and the phenomenon of acoustic alarms as seen from neurologic, sociologic and cultural perspectives." —Mario Margani
