Mise en Scène

Video installation  

Part of a two artists collaboration project

Curator: Nir Harmat

Virtual exhibition / April -June 2020

Mise en Scène installation is composed by 5 video works:

The Hunt, a big wall projection, depicts an ongoing walking/searching/hiding within a primeval, sublime forest, with no clear motive or propose, focusing on the viewer’s uncertain, apprehensive and fearful expectation. 

“It is only as any aesthetic phenomenon that existence and the world appear justified.” 

Friedrich Nietzsche - The Birth of a Tragedy. 1872 


Mise en Scène approaches a basic and ongoing dilemma that has haunted my creative process for many years, which is confronting me to the basic question that asks about my moral rights as an artist to relate and interpret atrocities using aesthetics as means of expression. As if, for the sake of art, one could see harmonic tones, within the ugliness of evil. As if, for the sake of existence, one would foreseen light, within the harshness of truth. As if, it wouldn’t be possible in any other way.

But besides any personal contemplation, Mise en Scène aims to expose the subliminal and inevitable pleasure of aesthetic character, which arises as the artist’s creative spirit searches through the absurdity of horrors to find reasons; an imperative path that makes it possible to sublimate many unbearable facts of the history of the human kind.

Lullaby, composed by three small video screens, uses the beauty of melodious tunes and the flowing gestural expressions to portray a musical performance of obscure connotations.

The Count, a silent video work screened on a monitor, deals with time and order in a continuous, rigorous and systematic rhythm.

The Question, another video work without sound, which is also screened on a monitor, based on a dialog between two characters of Greek mythology, exposing disturbing aspects concerning the essence of human nature.

Mise en Scène, a video installation composed by two synchronized projections that depict two surreal landscapes of poetical, yet most disturbing character; a looping tragedy that surpasses the limits of place and time; a theatrical play of recurring beginnings and ends.
