This year's WineFest, the second to be held at Ramat Hanadiv, will feature an exhibit appropriately named 'Full-bodied'. Its curator, Aya Bernhard-Ravsky, has been initiating and presenting art projects throughout Israel for years. They involve the art community in trying to bring about change or awareness of essential social issues, and enable different sectors of the population to express their opinions creatively and visually even though most of them are not working artists. Unlike temporary exhibitions by professionals, Aya's innovative projects encourage active intervention and foster the engagement of people in the larger community.
'Full-bodied' will be presented in Ramat Hanadiv's Memorial Gardens during the two days of the WineFest, 25-26 March 2015, under the auspices of the Binyamina Winery.
'Understand wine; rekindle the excitement...'
The term 'full-bodied' relates to the texture of wine -- its viscosity, which describes the level of the wine's 'heaviness' rated as medium, light, full, weak, heavy, or round. Wine with body fills the mouth with its flavour, and is generally more intense, valuable wine. It is dense, not watery, with a dark colour and full presence. This usually refers to wine that has been well aged in oak barrels.
The exhibition will realize the concept of 'Full-bodied' in terms of the plastic arts. Each work will be created using a unique method and various media, incorporating wine bottles, corks, and personal experience, and each will be an individual statement reflecting the artists' love of wine and its significance in their lives.
