Zadok Ben-David's inspiration derives from nature, science, magic and illusion. From Evolution and Theory (1995), where he explores scientific discoveries, to the psychological installation Blackfield (2007), with thousands of flowers, and the magical The Other Side of Midnight (2013), which incorporates hundreds of insects, one of the characteristics of Ben-David's work is the use of multiplicity as an organising principle. He creates an alternate amplified viewing space where the relationship between viewer (human) and artwork (nature) is both sacred and destabilising. The new ongoing installation People I Saw but Never Met, features thousands of miniatures of people that he has photographed and drawn during his travels, suggesting ways in which we are both isolated yet always close together. Together with outdoor works, completed over a twenty-year period, this new book brings these four installations together for the first time, in all their magical detail. Zadok Ben-David is an Israeli artist, living in London. He was born in Bayhan, Yemen, in 1949 and immigrated to Israel in the same year. He graduated in advanced sculpture from St. Martin's School of Art in London and taught at the same institution from 1977-1982. Ben-David is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Grande Biennial Premio at the XIV Biennale International de Arte de Vila Nova de Cerveira, Portugal (2007), and the Tel Aviv Museum prize for sculpture (2005). In 1988 he represented Israel at the Venice Biennale; and in 2008, he was commissioned to make a sculpture for the Beijing Olympics. His work is exhibited internationally, most recently in Singapore, Sydney and Los Angeles. SELLING POINTS: . First comprehensive monograph of the Zadok Ben-David's work .
