The Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature is participating in the 2018 France-Israel Season, presenting the works of two Israeli artists.

Falling bird by artist Ori Gersht is inspired by the still life of the XNUMXth century painter Jean Siméon Chardin, entitled Un canard col-vert attached to the wall and a bigarade (museum collection). The film reveals a hanging duck, suddenly slicing through a shimmering black surface, which collapses into its own reflection. The impact of the bird which penetrates the liquid surface as well as the triggering of a formidable chain reaction, evokes the idea of ​​an ecological disaster. Ori Gersht explores the relationship between photography and technology.

Blackfield by Zadock Ben-David is an installation made up of hundreds of metal flowers cut out and planted in a thin layer of sand. From XNUMXth century Victorian encyclopedias, these plants make up a sort of immense three-dimensional toile de Jouy or Liberty. The artist's work plays with perception and perspective, while the obverse and reverse of the work question life and death.
