THIS IS SURELY THE MOST ambitious of the season-opening exhibitions in the local art world: the creation of a replica of Anne Frank’s house in a Tel Aviv gallery. The storeroom is in the basement, and Anne’s room, the bathroom, the bookcase, the ladder and the attic have all been replicated full-size in the Dvir Gallery’s multi-story setting.
As the interior covers only part of the floor space of each level, visitors can not only walk inside the house – amid Fujiwara’s architectural, sculptural and figurative interventions – but can also view it from the outside. The result is a house within a gallery – in fact, a museum within a gallery.
