Zadok Ben-David: Human Nature

10 February - 21 April 2018

Take a closer look – things aren’t always quite what they seem. A suspended sphere hovering above comes to life under UV light to celebrate the rhythmic beauty of nature. A field of miniature plants resembles a bush fire-ravaged landscape, only to reveal new life.

These two breathtaking installations are the centrepiece of Human Nature, an exhibition by prominent Yemen-born, London-based artist Zadok Ben-David that brings optimism and a touch of magic to issues such as our relationship with nature and our views of life and death.

A Perth Festival exhibition supported by Visual Arts Program Partner Wesfarmers Arts.
