Israel-born artist Yochai Matos, who is based in Tel Aviv, has a sense of humour. A number of his installations use fluorescent tube lights as a medium, such as Flame (Gate), which, when its set up in the woods, looks like a sneaky portal into another world. One of his recent works, You Are a Saint, arranges the tube lights to allow anyone to take a cheeky saintly self-portrait of themselves. It’s marvellous stuff.
