Near artist Noa Schwartz’ flat, on the roof of an eclectic-style building overlooking Bialik Square, "Vanish Action" is exhibited. A cinematic, dreamy sense emerges from this gentle installation. This is not the first time Schwartz exhibits in locations near her living spaces.  Her works usually refer to the architectural environment, to furniture or to useful objects, which she sculpts from organic materials such as sand, twigs or glass; they are intimate by nature, and tend to take place in the public space. "Vanish Action" is made up of two sculptural sections:  a dilapidated architectural section is seen from Bialik Square, which the artist added to the eclectic building’s turret as if straightening it, turning it into a cylindrical domed dovecote; upon ascending the staircase to the vacated roof, in a small space reminiscent of ancient laundry rooms, several sculptural works are revealed, devoid of a definite form, small, almost invisible: plasticine sculptures that serve as receptacles for washing liquid the artist has concocted from plants that grow in the square, with limbs reminiscent of body parts. A sense of dampness and murkiness emanates from the sculptures. They merge into the walls like parasites that seem to have occupied the building, which has accumulated electric infrastructures, in slipshod Israeli style.
