Life Sciences

Eran Gilat is a professor of Neuroscience. Eran earned his B.Sc. in Biology from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, his D.Sc. degree in Medical Sciences from the Israel Institute of Technology and his Post-Doctoral Scholarship from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. Eran’s research focused on the study of the mechanisms underlying epilepsy, and the development of innovative cure for this illness.
Eran is also an avid art photographer, in the past mostly engaged in portraits, and street photography. In the last 4 years Eran found himself directing most of his attention and energy to still life photography of biological specimens, highly inspired by his long lasting confrontation with biological tissues and natural fauna. Eran’s photographic activity deals with the aesthetics of the scene, improvising various contexts, the tools and paraphernalia shown are not just the typical ones used in the operating place. His "Life Science” project is forcing the biological tissue into a relatively pleasant, sometimes artificial scenarios contemplating issues of materialism, erotica and mortality, corresponding with the complicated and intriguing category of “Animal reminder” in the visual arts.

Review

Your work is highly creative and intriguing. It draws the viewer in, wanting to
explore what it is all about. Reading your statement and finding out that it relates to
neurobiology gives some clues but, in a good way, leaves the viewer guessing. It
seems to speak in a direct way to the bit of our brain that understands meaning
without being able to put it into words. Technically I like the way that the images
draw on painterly techniques. I would suggest that you are very careful when
presenting a set of images that the density is coherent. Also bear in mind that
things will look very different when presented as small images on the internet
compared with how they look as prints. Also be careful to keep the images
consistent in terms of contrast. All in all a fine piece of work which although difficult
to sell Millennium would be glad to take on board. Jason Shenai
