Impressionist Afternoon video painting.
6 hours from “Day at Shefer” video compressed into 02:25 minutes.
Video from Shefer Cafe in South Tel Aviv, Israel. Inspired by Impressionism and the Famous Cafes of Paris in the 19th century, particularly Maxim’s de Paris, Cafe des Ambassadeurs, and Follies Bergere. It is particularly important to realize what was the role of these cafes, which in fact replaced ‘creative laboratories’ for artists working in the impressionist direction. This is why I found it interesting to document this particular cafe, in which a lot of artists and curators from the near by Center for Contemporary Art that is right around the corner are gathering every day of the week.
