About The Art
Jaffa, Israel, where this photograph was snapped, is a mixed city of Arabs and Jews. The blended culture is particularly poignant in this set of wires, which features an oriental print alongside a geometric one. Askayo succeeds in turning us as viewers into unassuming voyeurs of this melting pot.
About the Artist
Sivan Askayo is a photographer based in Tel Aviv and New York. As an artist, she photographs what she loves—food, travel, street art—and tends to immerse herself entirely within her environment. This unique tendency allows Sivan to capture the true essence and personality of her surroundings.
Sivan's laundry project, aptly titled 'Intimacy under the Wires,' began with a random shot taken in Jaffa one inconspicuous Friday afternoon in April of 2010. As fate would have it, the single shot was destined to act as the catalyst for an entire series consisting of numerous snapshots, each offering a glimpse into people's lives through their laundry. This global photography collection is intimate and alluring, offering a voyeuristic sense of energy and rhythm as the breeze blows her subjects dry.
Sivan's work has been featured in leading publications including Elle Decor US, Marie Claire Italia, Travel+Leisure, Conde Nast Traveler, The Independent, Phaidon and Design*Sponge. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, and she has been involved with emerging artists groups both in New York and in Tel Aviv.
