“Touch” is Chen Ziv’s first solo exhibition, in which a collection of 13 bronze sculptures will be presented, dealing with internal dialogue through the lines of emotion, body, femininity, passion and pain. Ziv invites the audience to take part in the creation and creation of each newly created sculpture. Each new sculpture is the result of a collaborative process with the audience present in the studio. In contrast to art exhibitions, the artist invites the audience to touch her works and to let people take part in the journey she is conducting in the creative process. This request actually challenges the distance between the work and the viewer.
In the framework of the exhibition, Ziv presents the “peeling” of an extraordinary cooperation that brings together the world of art and the world of music. The work, a collaboration of artist and singer-songwriter Avraham Tal, presents a moving process that expresses deep emotional aspects in music and material, emotional sculpture in music and sound. The work is an accurate encounter between two arts that joined one.
The project and the clip were made in collaboration with the photographer and photographer Zohar Ron
The exhibition will include photographs of the artist and creator, Tal Tal, by photographer Eldad Shoshan. Eldad Shushan
Prior to Chen Ziv’s entry into the art world, she worked for two decades as a senior art director in the advertising world, creating large projects in Israel and abroad, in which she touched on femininity, sexuality and exposure. “I worked with great passion, I found myself sometimes confused with fears and objections, in front of a frightened and imbalanced world … I had to start creating myself, burning out, finding my language …”.
