Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature

A special program of recent video works from Israel

Curated by Hadas Maor

 In correlation with the France-Israel Season of culture Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature presents a special program of recent video works from Israel. The program is structured in three parts addressing the multifaceted relations between nature and culture in general, and specific aspects typical to the case of Israel, in particular. The program enables the viewers a broad acquaintance with recent and prominent endeavors extracted from the vibrant contemporary art scene in Israel. Evolving from the playful and the naïve to the poetic and the profound, the program emphasizes works which promote reflection and debate relating to aesthetic and political questions at the heart of the very being of Israel. Within this context the program also focuses on works addressing questions of place, memory and identity. Problematizing the complex relation between body and land in the specific context of the land of Israel, the harsh political realm of the region is manifested in the works in an array of subjective, poetic ways.
