Ben Hagari: Potter’s Will

Ben Hagari:
Potter’s Will

The 2015 Chami Fruchter Prize
for an Emerging Israeli Video Artist
 

Ben Hagari’s tragi-comic films and video installations manifest absurd environments that raise questions of identity and territory. Reborn in all these films, the artist’s figure is locked within an automated mechanism and deals with cultural, modern or ancient circumstances often caused by technological failure, by radicalization or reversal of an existing mechanism. In his new video installation, Potter’s Will, Hagari uses the potter’s wheel to examine ancient myths about the creation of a vase, a man, an artist and art.
