Study of a Man Dancing, 2013, video, 11 min.
Tzion Abraham’s work stretches the boundaries of the medium to raise reflexive questions on the way videos are screened and the importance of the medium in creating substantive contents in the work.
At the center of the frame, a dancer walks within a human circle, and the people around him photograph him using their mobile phones. Hazan uses this photographic documentation as raw material for his work, and presents the dance from the documenting audience’s various perspectives. The structure formed by the audience around the dancer produces a sequence of perspectives allowing the viewer to observe the dancer from several angles at the same time.
