PEOPLE I SAW BUT NEVER MET, 2015-2020

People I Saw but Never Met is Zadok Ben-David’s latest ongoing body of work, which to date includes over 6,000
chemically acid-etched stainless steel miniature figures and 200 large hand-cut aluminium figures. Culled and drawn
from photographs the artist took from people he encountered from distance as a result of his travel to Europe,
Central Asia, Far East Australia USA, and Antarctica.


The installation brings together an unlikely assemblage of global citizens including refugees and immigrants.

“Ben-David’s sculptural milieu comes at a critical point in our current socio-political climate [...] Where heated debates about exclusion and borders versus inclusivity and multiplicity are part of our daily experience.” Shoshana Wayne Gallery.
