Tal Avitzur – Assemblage Sculpture Night Lights



Jigsy - Tal Avitzur

Tal Avitzur

Scavenging at marine and auto salvage yards, recycling centers, construction site dumpsters, swap meets and yard sales has become an obsession. I rescue parts that are on their way to a landfill or a smelter and give them a new purpose in life. I’m fond of vintage power tools, kitchen appliances, vacuum cleaners, floor polishers and old lab equipment. The original use of a vast majority of the spare parts in my inventory is a mystery.

Space Squid - Tal Avitzur

After bringing parts to the studio, they are cleaned, disassembled (if necessary), sometimes polished, then sorted. Inspiration comes from a youth filled with a healthy dose of science fiction, mythology, comic books, and still having the playful mind of a seven-year-old.

Each piece begins with finding the personality in an object, then test fitting combinations together, and cutting, drilling and grinding until reaching a natural-looking fit. The workshop bench usually has a few different projects going on at any time. Sometimes, sculptures need to be put aside for months while waiting for just the right salvaged part. Making these one-of-a-kind, whimsical, found-object sculptures has allowed me to indulge my passion for creating art, while giving new life to discarded objects, and perhaps preserving a bit of industrial history.
