יונתן קופרמן // Jonathan Cuperman
Jonatan Cuperman collects artefacts and relics of Israeli antiquities from the distant and near past; Discarded helmets, abandoned objects, remains of another historical narrative. Let's create new life in "survivors" by re-sculpting them with diverse work techniques.
The reconstruction of objects and the use of light sources give them new meaning, and connect their function in the past, with poignant insights and contemporary imagery. The dialogue created between the long-forgotten and forgotten tools and remnants here and now creates the possibility of a new diverse interpretation.
"The dialogue between past and present is one layer in his works; Cuperman has a sharp sense of humor that is combined with a "softened" cynical approach, which makes his works fascinating and provocative but also optimistic. His art is communicative, contemporary and challenging. His latest exhibition "Fishing Hope" focused on the theme and the Sisyphean situation in which we live. Hope is a driving force. We must fish this Hope This, and Jonathan Cuperman is a master Fisherman".
