Bodies. 6 Women, 1 man, Nadav Kander
Nadav Kander
Hatje Kantz, 2013

Nadav Kander (born 1961) is an Israeli-born, London-based artist, director and photographer, internationally renowned for his landscapes and portraiture. His latest photographic series, Bodies, consists of nudes painted white against a black backdrop, their faces tuned away from the viewer. Accessories are minimal, as is the aesthetic; yet, at the same time, the arrangement makes the sitters’ mostly voluptuous bodies seem baroque. Despite the abundance of flesh on display, the images lack a superficial sense of the erotic; the white makeup and lack of eye contact function as barriers, and the massiveness of the limbs recalls the work of Hans Bellmer and Lucian Freud. Like Bellmer and Freud, Kander presents us with a simulacrum of sensuality, questioning our images of the human body as well as the concept of beauty itself.
