Nir Alon is a German sculptor and installation artist born in 1964 in Israel. Nir Alon arranges his installations directly at the place of exhibition using castoff, ordinary articles such as furniture, tables, chairs, suitcases, lamps, light bulbs and cables. By creating his work with these familiar, daily artefacts, Alon manages to achieve a serious effect with his audience in the most intelligent, and yet economical manner. His aim is to challenge our understanding and relationship with these familiar, comforting objects by presenting them in a state of hurried abandonment. His work is in many public and private collections in Germany, Israel, Italy and United States.
