RUBI LEBOVITCH: HOME SWEET HOME. Daylight Books, Hillsborough, 2015. 104 pp. with 45 col. ills. 29 x 32 cm. ISBN 9781942084136 In English.
Publisher's description: Rubi Lebovitch is an Israeli artist whose photographs deal with domestic scenes characterized by mystery, vagueness, and absurdity. His photographs show scenes that are inscrutable to viewers and difficult to identify; their relationship with the world around them seems senseless. The restlessness characterizing his work is connected to Freud's concept of the Uncanny, which locates the origins of horror in the homely and familiar. The scenes depicted in the photographs emphasize what usually remains hidden: the repressed, which cannot be described. The anxiety these scenes arouse undermines the peacefulness and security usually associated with home.
