noam ben-jacov

i was born in Israel 1952 (kibbutz Hazorea), live and work in the Netherlands from 1985 to present. Study from 83-85 nova Scotia university of the arts, Canada, and 85’-89’ completed studies at g. 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….

Noam Ben-Jacov, unnameable and untamable

Noam Ben-Jacov determines his works as body-related objects.
Kafka wrote about people who suffer because of their profession.
The audience often pays for the privilege to watch the suffering in order to get purified through catharsis. Noam most probably must know this.
His works contain that u n n a m e a b l e – that provides a kind of magical distance, mystery, nameless might, holiness.

I am staggered by Noam Ben-Jacov’s dynamic restlessness when he purposefully marches towards his destination in snowfall, wearing his sandals. Directly or indirectly.

The world can be understood in various ways. The metaphor of the lock and key is one possibility. If man’s tool is the key then every problem is the lock to him.

NBJ’s performances must be seen in reality. Not only because many of our perceptions fail to reach us from the screen, we subconsciously pick out the significant, much is lost in translation, much disappears in censure. In any case our nerves won’t shoot all at once. And since the body has a tendency to sabotage the attention of the mind by a deviation, whatever we receive from the screen is inevitably one-sided. Something essential might get lost – the crunch of the dancer’s feet on the floor, gusts of air of drawn breath, the echo of metal constructions clinging together …
We see, hear, smell and feel the ultra smell (the smell by which two squirrels recognise each other in the forest). We hear the silence after a porcelain vase has shattered.
Noam tears reality into throbbing pieces and fits it back together. Art’s touchstone is its precision, said Ezra Pound.
The key of these moments is the tension between the form’s brilliant prison and freedom of depiction.
An accord emerges, assembling of unexpected sounds, something new with the sound of its own. Stimulating one sense enhances others as well – synthesis, what else. It whips the senses, adds perceptions, so we could feel fully satisfied with the performance of life. To be mortal and charged with perceptions means both panic and – privilege. For those who have partaken in NBJ’s performances such a perception of swinging signifies an exalting privilege.

The letters that Noam sends to his friends are so special. They are like dance performances. There are hardly any sentences as such. Just a thought, then another – and a dotted line in between. I always read these letters as pantomime. A movement – and the accompanying aerial gap, a dotted line. Then the next movement, something rustles in the air. The picture runs in front of the eyes and in the ears.
Mystical non-material force of 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
