“The Orientalist” – Exhibition Opening & Conversation with Israeli Artist Eitan Buganim
Conflating desires, miracles, magic, and impending catastrophes, “The Orientalist” is composed of four short videos in full synchronization, arranged at exactly the same rate, with each crop, angle change, or dramatic action happening simultaneously. The soundtrack for each video is a popular “Oriental” (Mizrahi) Israeli song from the 1980s and 1990s, before this music genre broke into the mainstream. The identical structure attempts to trace the rhythm and melody for each song, highlighting the emotional and social meanings of both the scenes unraveling on screen and the accompanying music.
