Exotic Tree is part of the Innerscapes series which Ben-David has been creating over the last 6 years. The Innerscape series plays upon the idea of worlds existing within a larger subject matter. In this piece one can see the arboreal world in which the Lilliputian figures inhabit. Whether the viewer construes them to be part of the tree and therefore existing symbiotically with it or whether the figures have created a separate world within the canopy it forces the viewer to address the issue of man and nature.
Ben-David’s career has grown dramatically since the early 1980s. By 1988 he had been selected to represent Israel at the Venice Biennale and has since won the Grande Biennial Premio at the XIV Biennale. Other solo exhibitions of his work have taken place in the Guangdong Art Museum in China 2007; as well as in 2010 at the Tel Aviv Museum in Israel, where he also won the Tel Aviv Museum of Art sculpture prize. In 2013 Ben-David held two solo exhibitions in Los Angeles and Sydney, both entitled The Other Side of Midnight, he is now working towards a retrospective in Tel Aviv next year.
