Staring Back at the Sun: Video Art from Israel, 1970-2012.
Curators: Ilana Tenenbaum, Sergio Edelsztein, Yael Bartana, Avi Feldman.
Organizing curator: Chen Tamir.
Staring Back at the Sun: Video Art from Israel, 1970-2012 traces the development of contemporary video practice in Israel and highlights work by artists who take an incisive, critical perspective towards the cultural and political landscape in Israel and beyond. Produced and circulated by Artis as an internationally touring exhibition and program (2016-2018), the project showcases the work of 38 artists, including early performances, films and videos never before presented outside of Israel.
Divided into four historical and thematic sections, Staring Back at the Sun focuses on the activist impulse in video art-making in Israel over the last four decades. Informed by the international history of video art, the exhibition traces the development of the medium and explores how artists here have employed technology and material to examine the socio-political status quo, through themes such as the prominence of political conflict in mass media, the liberalization of the economy, and the impact of free market politics on Israeli culture.
Artists: Boaz Arad, Yossi Atia & Itamar Rose, Yael Bartana, Irit Batsry, Guy Ben Ner, Hila Lulu Lin Farah Kufr Birim, Michael Druks, Benni Efrat, Avraham Eilat, Nir Evron, Yair Garbuz, Gideon Gechtman, Moshe Gershuni, Tamar Getter, Dor Guez, Sigalit Landau, Raffi Lavie, Motti Mizrachi, Avi Mograbi, Michal Naaman, Joshua Neustein, Miri Nishri, Dov Or-Ner, Nira Pereg, Gilad Ratman, Roee Rosen, Buky Schwartz, Ruti Sela & Maayan Amir, Henry Shelesnyak, Ran Slavin, Doron Solomons, Micha Ullman, Rona Yefman, Dan Zakhem, Nana & Boaz Zonshine ... more

Natalia Laluq: Clay Hammer.
The two-month-long Ceramic Residency of Natalia Laluq at RKG, through stages of clay working – drying – firing, reaches its culmination this September. RKG becomes a backdrop of celebration. The Ceramic Residency has been an ongoing demonstration of the studio experience. The process of working, for the visitors, was part of the show. The exhibition work has been created using clay, pottery wheel, and kiln.
Clay Hammer is a concept conceived and executed within certain requirements: first, conditioning in clay work; second, pacing the flow of work by keeping a sense of humour and of the mundane informing the work; third, the day of judgement – firing – brings us the Clay Hammer.
Natalia's clay work reveals processes of thinking, improvising, observing, recalling and revising from memory, use of gesture both rapid and considered with thin wire or wheel, which speaks of an embodied artistic quest.... The tracing wire creates an eloquent texture. Tactile and gestural qualities of Laluq's clay works, and their expressive power, become aspects that also reveal in arresting ways. Natalia Laluq's low-key approach is present in her Clay Hammer.
The show is an invitation to the familiar, with a sense of depth in both experience and practice, open to the unfamiliar. We thank the artist Natalia Laluq for giving us the unique opportunity at RKG for sharing her journey of the Clay Hammer.
Artist statement: I have been working with clay for a long time, almost as long as the clay has worked with me. As long as we work together, learn and sometimes get into that relaxed collaborative mode, where each other's meeting point becomes the ceramic. However this harmonious state changes to separation through life's circumstances. Nostalgic longing towards each other and the long-dreamed-of meetings end in quarrel and conflict. Our expectations of meeting the same material end in communication with an alienated substance. I accept the punishment, hoping for new harmonious relationships with clay in future.
Presented is the result of one such "meeting-your-old-friend-you-almost-forgot-what-he-looks-like" session. – Natalia Laluq ... more

Frances Ferdinands: Between Latitudes. Frances Ferdinands is a Sri Lankan-born Canadian visual artist whose exhibition history spans three decades. Her work is usually constructed in thematically based series, and has always been concerned with social, cultural and political issues. Since 2007 her work has gravitated towards Sri Lankan references, and stories related to her own biography, including migration, references to her hybrid identity and childhood memories of trying to “fit in.” Much of the work for this solo exhibition emanates from revisiting her homeland of Sri Lanka. There she studied with masters in the field of traditional Sri Lankan fine art and craft that is not widely practised anymore in the country. She states: “My intention was to study these old forms and revitalize them through re-interpretation within a contemporary context.”
