Art Photography by Avital Lang
I became acquainted with Charity, a refugee from Zimbabwe, through her
work at my house as a domestic worker. I had come to know Jenita, a
businesswomen from South Africa, through her studies as a student in my
art studio. Both of these self-sufficient women live in South Africa, yet
in
between them lies a profound abyss nurtured by differences in culture,
ethnic origin and social standing.
In my eyes, the human body is nature's most splendid work of art and I
am constantly captivated by it. As I see it, every line, every curve and
every fold are the embodiment of true beauty. It is this body language,
these expressions of our physique that I attempt to unravel in my work.
Often, as does a child, I observe animals with great envy and fascination,
at awe from how unconscious they are of their bodies. They are not
naked, nor are they dressed. Their body simply exists and they carry it
freely without acknowledging it. These reflections are what drive my
artistic work and stand at the heart of my endeavors to discover the
uncovered individual that is free from being preoccupied and absorbed
with his body and mind.
In the works presented, titled "Chery & Jenita 1-5", I experimented with
photography, a new terrain that is very different from my usual artistic
practice - clay sculpting. I was drawn to this medium because of the
challenges that it posed before me, as I had always perceived it to be
less
sensual and more conceptual and political. It was the camera that forced
me to look at the social and political reality in which I live in from a
new
perspective and to find my place in this reality both as a player and as a
spectator.
Charity and Jenita's agreement to take part in this project required them
to
overcome a double obstacle - to relinquish what is private and personal,
the human body, and to abandon their political beliefs and practices,
which are also one's protective shield. The bonding that transpired
between both women, despite the fact that they were strangers to each
other and inspite of their predispositions, was instant and astonishing.
The
nude body was suddenly transformed into a platform of universality
instead of particularity. For a few precious moments, the women's guards
were let down and there was no tension but rather womanhood, pure
femininity and great enjoyment. That such an experience can come about
in South Africa is quite unique.
