Matissa

Orit Adar Bechar’s Matissa is an adaptation of Henri Matisse’s painting Harmony in Red (1908). The artist resurrects Matisse’s painting and recharges it with her own interpretation. She leaves intact the painterly and plastic components of the original work, and therefore the world in which the maid is moving about is actually a painting. Adar Bechar refers to Matisse’s “flattening” style that abolishes the realistic depth and traditional perspective by using a monochromatic palette, which blurs the distinction between objects. The world thus created deludes the spectator’s visual perception and makes it difficult to distinguish between two-and three- dimensionally, between depths and flatness. The game and flattening factors of this delusion correspond with children’s games and children’s painting respectively.

Director: Orit Adar Bechar

Producer: Chen Scheinberg, Ben Hagari

Production Company: The New Fund for Cinema and TV, Noga Communivation - Logi Channel

Film Name in Hebrew: מאטיסה
