The 3th collection of the project "Who’s That Nude In The Living Room?"

Idan Wizen invite us to think about the multiple metaphors representing the shadow of the model, societal indifference or even the archetype of the idealized body.

Few words about this collecton

"The mannequin represents the perfect body without apparent imperfection. It can also represents societal judgment, the gaze of others."

The “Arles” collection is the third series of the artistic project “Who’s That Nude in the Living Room?” created by Franco-Israeli artist and photographer Idan Wizen. Produced during the prestigious European Festival of Nude Photography in Arles, this collection stands out for its spontaneous and immersive approach, capturing the essence of the event and the energy of its participants.
Photographed against a Van Gogh yellow background, in homage to the famous painter who left such a mark on the city of Arles, this collection evokes the warmth and vitality of his works. This color choice creates a striking contrast with the nudity of the models, enhancing the visual and emotional power of each photograph.
One of the most unique aspects of the “Arles” collection lies in its spontaneous creation. Visitors to the exhibition were invited, at the end of their visit, to participate in a photo session. This direct and immediate interaction allowed for the creation of a series of authentic and vibrant photographs, reflecting the diversity and richness of the participants.
The day after their photo session, the prints were presented in a new exhibition, allowing the visitors from the previous day to discover the created works and see their own image transformed into art. This dynamic and participatory approach not only captured intimate and personal moments but also created a strong connection between the artist, the participants, and the audience.
The “Arles” collection comprises 25 photographs, each capturing a unique and spontaneous moment. Through these images, Idan Wizen celebrates spontaneity, creativity, and human interaction, offering a unique perspective on the beauty and diversity of the human condition. These works, set against a vibrant yellow background reminiscent of Van Gogh, invite viewers to explore and appreciate the complexity and richness of the human experience.
FA03 - Arles by Idan Wizen

we will really look deep within ourselves, in our unconscious, in our subconscious, the resources, the why...

Each photo is unique just like its model and never touched up. This inevitably challenges us and creates in us a curious feeling of closeness, of belonging. Because these models are all of us.
