ARTIST'S STATEMENT


NECHAMA LEVENDEL AND NADAV BLOCH

Israeli artists, Nechama Lavendel and Nadav Bloch live and create their work in the artist village of Ein Hod. Located at the foot of the Carmel Mountains, Ein Hod was begun in 1953 by Marcel Janco, one of the founders of DADAism, the post World War I artistic protest movement.
Heavily influenced by their physical surroundings in the creation of their art, Levendel and Bloch over the past few years have begun to search for new sources of inspiration and enrichment. Their travels have enabled them to confront the creative process against a wide variety of visual and human landscapes and a diversity of light and colors.
By exposing themselves to different communities, Nechama and Nadav have expanded their understanding and belief in the universal language of art. Their work reflects a constant attempt to understand and find meaning for our existence within the universe. For them, encountering in their journeys endless fractions of this truth has led to a desire to use their art to search for new meanings and new explanations of the world they discover. Their art provides them with constantly evolving ways to interact with this search. At the same time, they are continually influenced by their growing knowledge that the interrelationships that create the universe are without finite answers.
These insights have led them in some of their recent works to confront various social issues that connect our past to the present. To commemorate the anniversary of Pope John Paul II' asking of forgiveness for sins committed by the Catholic Church against humanity they created "Power of Forgiveness." This sculpture had its opening in March, 2001 at the Vila Picolomini in Rome, and was subsequently shown in Dusseldorf, Germany. It is based on the ancient biblical ritual of the scapegoat - of the need of the community for forgiveness in order to continue mankind's existence and to preserve society's social values.
Currently, Bloch and Levendel have been commissioned to create a work entitled "The Right to Anchor" - a world wide photographic project that explores the symbolic role of the anchor in a universe of changing and conflicting realities. In a world of societal and individual conflict they are exploring their belief in a set of rules of social behavior that can be universally accepted. The artists believe that each person, regardless of origin, has a right to personal freedom while simultaneously preserving human values that respect the rights and freedoms of others. Each of us can "caste our anchor" in that physical and emotional place that best answers each individual's search for truth. This project is scheduled for its opening exhibition in May of 2003 at the Naval and Clandestine Museum, Haifa, Israel.
Nechama Levendel was born in Israel to a Yeminite mother and a Belgian father, who came to Israel as a volunteer to serve in the Israeli Army during its 1948 War of Independence. Nadav Bloch was born in Israel to parents who emigrated from Latvia after World War I.
