Rubi Lebovitch is an Israeli artist whose photographs deal with domestic scenes
characterised by mystery, vagueness, and absurdit
His photographs show scenes that are inscrutable to viewers and difficult to identify; their relationship with the world around them seems senseless. The restlessness characterising his work is connected to Freud's concept of the Uncanny, which locates the origins of horror in the homely and familia
The scenes depicted in the photographs emphasise what usually remains hidden: the repressed, which cannot be described. The anxiety these scenes arouse undermines the peacefulness and security usually associated with home.
