Event Details

A trained classical-singer and actor, a choir-conductor and a painter, Tamar has always sought innovative practices to merge musical performance with visual-arts. During London’s 2nd lockdown she discovered body-painting and enthusiastically embraced it to her toolkit. The pandemic restrictions were the prompt which drove Tamar to create a one-woman-show from her dorms room, all crafted and executed single-handedly using a smartphone-camera and an iPad. By painting on herself and transforming to various characters from operas, poems, and plays, she was able to tell a multi-layered story using colours, sounds and movement.

This artistic fusion platform is also used by Tamar to further explore her Ph.D topic, which looks into the Jewish-Orthodox ban on female singing. The connecting thread between the displayed artworks in this exhibition are her attempt to find alternative ways to express her voice. Through three different themed-recitals (which correspond with the displayed body-painting artworks) Tamar will explore stereotypes associated with the female voice, tell the story of silenced or historically neglected female characters, as well as try to challenge gender boundaries, and reclaim classical-music pieces that are traditionally performed by men.
