Family Romance

by Jon Davies

C Magazine, Winter 2007, no. 96, p. 10

Jon Davies discusses the video work of Israeli artist Guy Ben-Ner. Ben-Ner's work focuses on "the dynamics of the domestic home and the nuclear family, and of his place as the artist-patriach within them." Ben-Ner's usual material for his videos is performances by himself, his family and anything he finds around the house used as sets and props.
