Guy Ben-Ner: Self Portrait as a Family Man

16.02.2006 - 17.04.2006

Guy Ben-Ner’s works display an acute, self-critical and humorous position towards his familial situation and artistic practice. The struggle between the artist’s freedom and his will to take an active part in the creation of a healthy family life has underlain his works since 1996. Ben-Ner’s films are based on familiar settings and circumstances of mutual love, care and abuse, and are informed by his interest in early film and the vaudeville tradition as well as conceptual art practices.The exhibition shows a selection of works from the very beginning until his last project Treehouse Kit done for the Israeli Pavilion at the last Venice Biennale.
