High Visibility 2016-2017

"For art berlin contemporary, Rodeh presents a sequence of 21 hand-painted graphic works that trace various work-wear designs, all rendered in the strict format of 50x70x3 cm, and executed on uncoated aluminium sheets. This sequence of works comments on the many variations of graphic visuals which are omnipresent in our daily routine, but become easily avoidable and often overlooked." (press release)
