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....

'between intimacy and alienation'
About the work ‘Between intimacy and alienation’. The initial idea behind this work was to create sort of a performance, not a live one, but a static performance, in a way it is a combination of sculpture and theater, a performance in the form of an installation. By its nature, ‘between intimacy and alienation’ is both sculptural and theatrical, but nevertheless it remains static. once started the process I was in a need of looking, finding, re-defining to myself my ‘red-line’ (yes, later, translated into a transparent nylon wire ..) , how it all connects to one another. Along the way I got the urge, the need to re-arrange things to myself, to clarify, contextualize the work and the process too, the ways from A to Z, the way in which the idea develops. It means to discover where ‘things are laying ‘, as for me, having finished the work is somewhat like having reached the end. In fact, this work is a collection, a collage of thoughts, sketches and maquettes and video clips from various performances, derived from my body of works I call ‘body-sculpture’s’, which I began to develop in the mid eighty’s (1985-86 and onward…). I started this ‘collection’ once I began to develop my body-related works, constantly adding new materials which I brought into this process. This particular work (in very short…) existing and influenced by the human body, its movements, physic & mental, which is being presented in the form of dance performances (see DVD’s and website: www.noamben-jacov.nl ). When creating the performance I’m relating, enhancing the contact between ‘work’/object & human body and the space in between them as well as to the sound the ‘work’ makes. Many thoughts cross one another (concisely (?) or not….) along this way. As result of this search the steps I took become like a collection of ‘things on the move’, crossing from the one to the other, from down to up, from left to right …, emphasizing the interrelations and putting it all in a context of mutual relations. As to the title: ‘Between intimacy and alienation’, perhaps it is In 4 words the balance I’m looking for in all my works. I‘m searching to catch, to put all this process into ‘one large open box’, to show first and foremost to myself the connections between it all, and how one thing lead to the other. …..

'aquarium 1
aquarium 1 first in aerie of 3,the way it looking to me here in north Holland after 33 years The ‘Aquarium’(dream) installations,this is the first the others 2-3 you may see on my website. This series of 3 works was created between the years 2012-2015. It is about the way I experience my life, my stay, here in the Netherlands (north-west Holland) after 30 years and a little more. It is real (yet sort of like a series of dreams): at times a bit surrealistic, at times real - very real… Actually, it is about a family, generations after generations, and… the grandma: she is always there and has been there ever since. She is the representative of the other generation, the other time, the other layer, yet holding the ropes in her hands, navigating it all so that changes…will not be. The beautiful aquarium with the fountain in the middle, standing at one of the corners: it is there, a bit off-center, yet very central. It is all beautiful, peaceful, everything is in its place. The fish, swimming on one exact line, do not dare cause any social dis-order to this perfect harmony, yes, they all are swimming in a very calm, orderly and obedient way. They do like all other fish do (at least in this part of the world), talking very silently: ‘Oh, since I’m here…ok, yes, now I understand…’ Looking as if they are all very much connected to one another, the lights are soft and beautiful. But the silence - it is sort of stormy/silent-like. It is about those things which happen when most household or family members are lying in bed, in the wee-light hours, when you are on your own listening to the fish and to this water fountain, just wondering about the silence… Then finishing, wrapping up the day that is just about to end and evaporate, looking at the glass …the glass half-full or half-empty, (well, it is quite some time that it isn’t about the wine…), just wondering about the days to come
