Иерусалимская радуга

У

же не первый год столичная галерея «Скицца», расположенная в Арт-центре «Бейт от а-Муцар», совместно с НКО «Кегилот кольтот» и при поддержке Министерства Абсорбции, проводит фестиваль «Иерусалимская радуга». Цель нашего фестиваля познакомить иерусалимцев и многочисленных гостей столицы с творчеством как новых репатриантов, так и уже хорошо известных израильских художников. Любой такой фестиваль – это всегда серия тематических выставок, объединенных общей концепцией.

Вторая выставка называлась «Отраженные миры». Ей была предпослана цитата из фантастической повести Нила Геймана «Books of Magic»: «Желаешь увидеть иные миры? Хорошо. Но знай: места, которые ты посетишь, которые ты увидишь, не существуют. Есть только два мира – твой мир, который реален, и другие миры, фантазия» Космические пейзажи, похожие на земные, и земные пейзажи, которые выглядят совершенной фантастикой, мистические мотивы и мифические существа – каждый художник воплотил в своих работах свою индивидуальную реальность, какой бы фантастичной она ни казалась!

При подготовке фестиваля «Иерусалимская радуга – 2013» художникам была предложена несколько необычная для выставок изобразительного искусства форма: каждой выставке была предпослана цитата из известного литературного произведения, которая определяла тему экспозиции и ее настрой.

Эпиграфом к третьей выставке стали строчки из стихотворения О.Мандельштама: «О, как же я хочу, Нечуемый никем,  Лететь вослед лучу,  Где нет меня совсем!»

Первая выставка фестиваля носила название одноименной повести Трумана Капоте «Голоса травы».

Птицы и ангелы, плывущие по небу корабли и летящие в потоке музыки фигуры, молитва у Стены Плача… во всех работах, представленных на этой выставке - ощущение ничем не ограниченной свободы полета.

Общий настрой выставки лучше всего отражает цитата из любимой многими замечательной книги о детстве, о памяти, о нежелании взрослеть : «...Звенит луговaя aрфa, день и ночь рaсскaзывaет трaвa одну из своих историй - ей известны истории всех людей тaм, нa горке, всех людей, когдa-либо живших нa свете, и когдa мы умрем, онa тaк же вот стaнет рaсскaзывaть нaши истории…» Каждый художник «рассказал» свою историю: в стекле и живописи, керамике и фотографии, инсталляции, фотографии и музыкальном перформансе.

Литературный подтекст не сделал эти выставки иллюстративными, но придал им лирический настрой с легкой нотой иронии, без которой не обходится ни одна выставка современного искусства. «арфой звенит трава, она собирает наши истории и, вспоминая, рассказывает их, — луговая арфа, звучащая на разные голоса. Мы стояли и слушали». Марина Шелест


Jerusalem Rainbow

I

every painter embodied in the works his or her own reality, however imaginary it may seem!”

The purpose of our festival is to introduce Jerusalemites and visitors of the capital to the works of new immigrants, as well as already well-known and established Israeli artists. As any such festival - it is characterized by a series of thematic exhibitions that are united by a common concept. In preparation for the festival, “The Jerusalem Rainbow – 2013,» the artists were offered a subject matter that was unusual for most exhibitions. A citation from a famous literary piece was attributed to each one of the exhibitions that would define the theme and mood of the exposition itself.

The epigraph of the third exhibition came to be described by the lines from the poem of O. Mandelshtam: “Oh, how strongly do I long for reaching to the ray of light, where I do not exist and perceived by no one!” Birds and angels, ships floating in the sky and figures in the stream of music, prayer at the Wailing Wall.. in all of the works exhibited, there was a sense of limitless freedom of flight. Literary subtext did not make these exhibitions illustrative, but gave them a lyrical mood with a light note of irony, without which no part of the contemporary art exhibition may have come into being. «grass rings harp, it collects our history and reckoning them, tells them - meadow harp, sounding in different voices. We stood and listened.”

t is not the first year that “Skizza”, a metropolitan gallery located in the Art Center “Beit-Ha Mutsar”, has held the “Jerusalem Rainbow” festival in collaboration with the NGO “Kegilot Koltot” and supported by the Ministry of Immigrant Absorption.

The first festival exhibition was named after Truman Capote’s novel “The Grass Harp.» The following citation, found in a novel loved by many, about childhood, memory, and unwillingness to grow up reflects the overall mood of the exhibition: ”the meadow arphe is ringing, day and night it tells one of its stories – it knows the stories of all its people there, on the hill, all the people who’ve ever lived and when we die, it will again tell our stories...” Every painter “told” his story: through glass and paintings, ceramics and photography, installations or a music performance. The second exhibition was called “Reflection worlds.» The quotation that was attributed to the exhibition had been taken from Niel Geyman “Books of Magic”: “So you’d like to see other worlds? OK. But you should know: the places you will see do not exist. There are only two worlds – your world, which is real and other worlds, which are imaginary. Cosmic landscapes, resembling of earthly and earth landscapes looking out of this world, mystical motives and mythical creatures ;

Born 1950, Ulan-Ude, Buryatia, Russia, USSR. 1974 – graduated from Irkutsk Polytechnic Institute. 2010 – repatriated to Israel, lives in Ashdod. Before and after the war my mother worked in photography, so I grew up “in the light of a red lantern.” Hence my interest in photography. Before leaving for Israel, I scanned old photos of my ancestors exiled to Siberian. Looking at these pictures and remembering the work of old masters photographers who taught me a lot, I realized that modern digital “soapbox” and the laboratory “Kodak”“killed” many of the traditions of artistic

photography. Since then, I took photography seriously up. A major role in my creative work played Israel and its people.

Born 1962, Tashkent, Uzbekistan, USSR. Graduated from the Journalism Faculty of Tashkent State University. Immigrated to Israel in 1992. Lives in Hadera. Group Exhibitions: 2013 – Artists’ Forum of the Hadera city, Israel// Journalists’ House, Tel Aviv, Israel Works are in private collections in Israel, France, Germany, Russia, and Uzbekistan

In the US, Dzodin conducted many Historic American Building Survey/Historic American Engineering Record (HABS/HAER) photographic documentations of historic structures for the US National Park Service. These images are part of the permanent HABS/HAER collection in the US Library of Congress, Washington DC. In Israel, he has worked as photographer on various excavations, including Beer Shema (Negev), Rahavat Kotel (Jerusalem), the Byzantine Synagogue at Ein Gedi, Caesarea Maritima, the Hasmonaean Necropolis at Karantal (Jericho), Tel Dan, and Byzantine Halutza (Negev). Since making Aliyah, he has photographed the activities of the non-profit organization “PeacePlayers International – Middle East”, documenting the activities of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim youth who learn about leadership and cooperation through athletic teamwork. His work has appeared in several exhibitions, including “Israeli Artists from the USA” (2007), “Third Exhibition Cycle on the Theme “To Reach Beyond the Light” (2014), and the “Festival of Contemporary Arts” (2014), at the Skizza Gallery, Jerusalem.
