Braverman Gallery is participating to LOOP Fair 2022 with artist Nevet Yitzhak.
Informed by extended research and scholarship, the video and sound installations of Nevet
Yitzhak combine archival, photographic and found materials transformed through digital
animation, editing and sound treatment. With a critical examination of complex geo-political
concerns and the fraught relationships between global powers and the Middle East, her practice
raises questions about cultural heritage, suppressed histories, collective forgetfulness, and
identity. Living in Israel as a Jewish artist of Kurdish, Syrian and Yemenite heritage, Yitzhak
creates work that responds to her context, expressing her minoritized position within Israeli
society and her dissent from its current politics.
The Dark-Skinned Nightingale intercut a double spread from an illuminated Iranian manuscript
with fragments from Mohammed Karim’s film Delilah, Starring Shadia and Abd el-Halim Hafz
which is the first color film produced by the Egyptian film industry.
In this work, Yitzhak creates a moving parallel between two epic love stories of unrequited love
centered on a manipulative and destructive female figure. The illuminated manuscript tells the
biblical story of Joseph’s seduction by Potiphar’s wife, Zulaikha.
