Gilad Ratman (Israel 1975) lives and works in New York and Tel Aviv. His video work and installations concentrate on an investigation of what defines the 'human'. Ratman creates and scrutinizes imaginary moving-images hybrids of nature and culture; the untouched and the artificial merged into one familiar yet alien entity. By violating the correlation between cause and effect, his videos undermine the viewer's trust in the cinematic apparatus. Representations of Nature are a governing element in his works, and within it a human or wild presence occurs. The actions that this violent presence inflicts upon Nature charge it with a new meaning, resulting in a corrupt and poisonous landscape. The resulting piece can be read as fiction, documentary and sometimes even as a National Geographic film.
