‘Capture Practice’ a new video installation by Arkadi Zaides
The installation will debut at The Petach Tikva Museum of Art in Israel. As part of the museum’s ground-breaking approach to boldly seek 'blind-spots' in Israeli society, a group exhibition was initiated, aiming to explore the relation between dance and visual arts through the prism of community and space. Curated by Drorit Gur-Arie and Avi Feldman.
'Archive' goes to Avignon Festival
We are happy to announce that Arkadi Zaides has been invited to the next edition of the Avignon Festival with his new solo piece Archive. Archive takes as its starting point video material from the B’Tselem Video Archive. In 2007 B’Tselem, the Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories, initiated its Camera Project in which video cameras were distributed to Palestinians living in high-conflict areas. The project aimed to provide an ongoing documentation of human rights violations and to expose the reality of life under occupation to both the Israeli and international public.
After artistic residencies at CDC Toulouse and CNCD Angers, Arkadi Zaides will now continue to develop his new creation at STUK in Leuven, Théâtre National de Chaillot in Paris and WP Zimmer in Antwerp.
The world premiere of Archive is planned during the Avignon Festival, at Tinel de la Chartreuse, on 8, 9, 10 and 12, 13, 14 July 2014.
If you wish more information about Archive by Arkadi Zaides, do not hesitate to contact us (email@example.com). The solo will be available for touring from 2014-2015 onwards.
