SINGAPORE BOTANIC GARDENS, 2012

Flowers and trees have long played a strong role in Ben-David’s practice and are now joined by “human butterflies”, which first made their appearance in his practice in 1990’s. Zadok Ben- David skilfully uses the butterflies as a metaphor for human attitudes and behaviour. This installation reflects his on-going engagement with the humanisation of nature as a mean to express emotion.
