Braverman Gallery at Artissima 2018 with works by Dor Zlekha Levy in collaboration with Aviad Zinemanas, and Summer Wheat
Braverman Gallery will present the European Premier of the video Installation “Maqamat”
Maqamat, a work made in collaboration between visual artist Dor Zlekha Levy and musician Aviad Zinemanas, was born from their joint passion to reclaim the Arabmusic of early 20th-century Iraq. Innovative for its time, the forerunners of this musical trend were Jewish musicians among them internationally acclaimed Ezra Aharon and Yusuf Zaarur. These musicians later immigrated to Israel, settled there and left their reputation behind. Recordings and archival materials from the estate of these musicians serve the artists as a startingpoint to dealing with situations of separation, diaspora and yearnings. Maqamat articulates a unique symbiosis between the seen and the heard image, uniting them into one creation that expands beyond the boundaries of all the media that comprise it.
