Silver Pharm 

They are silvery, beautiful, soft, shiny, touchable, flattened, collapsing, flowing, and duplicated. At times they stand tall like still soldiers, other times they rub against each other, but there is always a relation between them. Silver Pharm, Ronen Raz’s new exhibition, is a shelf specimen of a familiar sterile territory: soft sculptures of haute couture objects based on models of cosmetics and cleaning products: a well cut allegory for the human relationship drama, squeezed into tubes of lotions and perfume bottles, tailor-made for the temple of modern man – the Super Pharm.
