Adi Nes plans and constructs each one of his images like a film director with shrewd and meticulous stage-work, based on direct references to well-known works from art history. This staging involves an iconographic and theoretical re-interpretation of original subjects, which are transposed into a contemporary setting and environment. The goal is to reflect the moment which encapsulates the whole action. The images seem to waver between pose and action. What is distinctive about Adi Nes is the intelligence he applies in juxtaposing the intensity of the film image with classical compositions drawn from the history of painting, to photographs which reveal us a critical eye on his time.
