Lecture by Gilad Ratman

Mon 22.11 20:00

This May, Diana Shoef of the CCA received a letter from Gilaad:

Dear Diana Shoef,

I am currently residing in Kamchatka. A small peninsula in Siberia. The tinny hut in which I live in has no electricity, but we do have Balalaika. Every single day I milk our single goat, and make love to Ludemilla, my thick legged, good hearted woman. I own a huge eagle, that resembles me very much, and to my order he flies round and round above our humble home making noises of an eagle. Tomorrow we will start accumulating fish fat to cover ourselves through the horrifying winter.

My life is good here and I am never coming back.

Video Art is bullshit, trust me.

During this lecture Gilad will try to explain what led him to write this lines. Lines that led to his sudden death.

Gilad Ratman was an artist that had exhibitions in all of the finest establishments, and is well praised by artists and intellectuals all over the world.

As it is already a tradition, Video Zone events will be open with an exhibition at the Israeli Center for Digital Art, Holon, titled Into the Eye of the Storm curated by Chen Tamir.

Into the Eye of the Storm brings together video works that use the camera as a protagonist or that otherwise call to question the power the camera has on its environment and the subjects it records. In a media-saturated world, where our personal and collective realities are increasingly mediated by video imagery, we must constantly analyze what forces shape what and how we exchange information.
