Keep An Eye
Grüntaler9, Berlin (2014)
KEEP AN EYE was Samocha’s first live performance in Berlin, where he created a large-scale drawing on the windows of grüntaler9.
Ram Samocha is an Israeli-born artist, presently resides in Brighton, UK; his work draws from the locale and the location of its creation. As an immigrant artist, Samocha focuses on the issues of personal and global transformation by combining traditional drawing skills with video, animation, and performance. Drawing is a seminal element in Samocha’s practice as it allows him to work with very basic media. Samocha often works on temporary surfaces and uses a personal artistic language that speaks via abstraction and the physical process of repetitive line-based actions.
