Rietveld academy, the Netherlands.I am fascinated by the simplicity … taking the complexity's of life... the daily... but fascinated...trying to "fish' the small things in life.... In general, all my works are responding to a personal situations or events in my life. Maybe… I am somehow the viewer and the participant at same time, on one hand the center of the unit, however, on the other hand, also the viewer, watching the ‘things ‘happening around… Noam Ben-jacov has been developing his ‘dynamic body related work’ (body-sculptures) for more than 30 years,Creating the work, I emphasizing on the mental, physic & movement. relating to the human body as the ‘motor’, the center’ creating the construction around, with and on the body, paying much attention to the overall contact between sculpture & human body as well as to the sound the ‘work’ makes and just naturally not forgetting the space surrounding it all, ‘enjoying’ the restrictions taking, incorporating them along into this moving sculptural unite. A unit where the human can define owns space, room, saying space meaning the inside and outside space, a room where you can be in… caring it, living in, thought of extension, sheltering with…in.I am strongly believing in very personal self-expression and wanting my work to be as associative as can be, or perhaps just letting the work to talk …to scream… preferably to sing….
