Starting in June 2019, his site-specific project «A Glorius Read: Sailore Drug» will move rooms and the immediate surroundings of the Kunsthalle Darmstadt into a state of transformation that anticipates the coming change in the shape of the place.

Loris Gréaud (born 1979), is featured for the first time in Israel in a solo exhibition constructed as a cyclical narrative whose main motif is rain. Rain as a futuristic technology and as a poetic, fictional or apocalyptic appearance, with a NASA cloudgenerator, the animated Grumpy Bear and fragments from J.G. Ballard’s science fiction novels, all accumulate to an atmosphere that is simultaneously futuristic, dramatic and dystopic.
