Art Undercover es una crónica sobre la búsqueda de Zadok para encontrar una pintura modernista perdida. La película está entre la actuación, el documental y la ficción. El vídeo tiene su origen en la historia de Shlomo Cohen Abravanel (quien más tarde se convertirá en uno de los jefes del “Mossad”, el servicio secreto israelí), quien realizó una misión encubierta en Egipto asumiendo la identidad de un pintor francés llamado Charduval. La historia de portada de Abravanel tuvo tanto éxito que más tarde tuvo una exposición individual en El Cairo y dos de sus pinturas fueron vendidas al Museo Nacional Egipcio. Tamir Zadok intenta rastrear una de las pinturas al óleo de Charduval en El Cairo, pero, tal como el agente del Mossad pretendió ser un artista hasta que se convirtió en uno, las obras de Tamir Zadok lo llevan a pretender ser un agente secreto falso, un artista espía. La narrativa reivindicada del video, la misión de encontrar la pintura perdida, sirve como plataforma para una discusión dual sobre la suplantación de un artista y de un árabe.

Art Undercover is a chronicle about Zadok’s quest to find a lost modernist painting. The film is on the seam between performance, documentary, and fiction. The video is rooted in the story of Shlomo Cohen Abravanel (who will later become one of the heads of the “Mossad” – the Israeli secret service), who went on an undercover mission in Egypt assuming the identity of a French painter named Charduval. Abravanel’s cover story was so successful that he later had a solo exhibition in Cairo and two of his paintings were sold to the Egyptian National Museum. Tamir Zadok tries to track one of Charduval’s oil paintings in Cairo but, just as the Mossad agent pretended to be an artist until he became one, Tamir Zadok’s works leads him to pretend to be a fake secret agent, an artist-spy. The video’s claimed narrative, the mission to find the lost painting, serves as a platform for a dual discussion on impersonation of an artist and of an Arab.

Tamir Zadok (Holon, 1979) is an Israeli artist who works with video, photography, and installation. His practice employs various types of recognizable film genres in order to undermine historical narratives and political identities. Zadok tests his identity in relation to the Arab expanse, which functions in his work on two levels: the biographical and the political. His last solo exhibition took place in the Tel Aviv Museum of Art in 2017 and he has participated in many exhibitions in Israel and abroad, including MODEM, Hungary (2018), Augusta gallery, Helsinki (2017), Martin Grupious Bau, Berlin (2015), Weserburg Museum, Bremen, Germany (2013), European House of Photography, Paris (2012), Total Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul, Korea (2012), Haifa Museum of Art (2011), and Artisterium, Tiblisi, Georgia (2010). He has won several awards and grants such as The Israel Museum Gerard Levi Photography Prize (2016), Artis Project Development Grant (2016), Artport residency (2015/16), Cité Internationale des Art, Paris (2012), and Israel Ministry of Culture Prize for Young Artists (2010).
