Venice To Jerusalem: “The Magic In The Lens”, Yitzhak Davidovich’s Exhibition In The Israeli Knesset

Borrowed from the Venice Mask Festival, Davidovich brings a new interpretation of today’s all-too-familiar masks to Jerusalem.

The exhibition “The Magic in the Lens – Venice to Jerusalem,” presents spectacular photographs – of colorful figures from the Venice Mask Festival, a new interpretation of the concept of “the mask” in this era of “Corona Time” with a gentle hand and faith of the artist Yitzhak Davidovich.

Walking inside the hall of the Culture and Sports Committee of the Knesset of Israel reveals a wonderful spectacle — An entire hall is dressed in Venetian experiences in the hand of Davidovich.

Isaac, a multi-active businessman, who as part of his work and many travels around the world, contracted the art bacterium, and was exposed to it quite a bit.

Now, in the era of “Corona Time”, the festival has been canceled and Yitzhak brings it in its entirety to the Knesset of Israel in this fascinating exhibition that reveals Tefah and hides Tefahim.

In the world of escapism we return this time to the romantic and colorful Venice, and are exposed to a new interpretation of the concept of the “mask”, discovery and concealment, cover and exposure, concentration and beauty versus the ugliness of hypocrisy.

We look at the investment in the scenery in the attire, in the lush fabrics, in the design, in the adherence to fashion, to the line that the presenter wanted us to see but there are also the eyes that suggest the human genome…happy, melancholy, anxious or maybe hopeful?

An instructive symbiotic for the viewer, of different shades, textures, and languages ​​combined in this exhibition.

It has, in Venice, a maddening combination of gold, blue, pink and crazy kitsch. Yitzhak Davidovich takes good care of the various, invested carnival characters, but at the same time he also presents us with the less perfect, the less complex, and the more human figures.
