CALL FOR YOUTH LEADERS & AMBASSADORS OF ALL UNITED NATIONS MEMBER STATES TO CONVENE, CONSOLIDATE AND LEND A VOICE IN REPRESENTATION OF LOCAL ISSUES FOR GLOBAL ACTION
Artist Michel Platnic and FutureHere are calling for youth leaders, ambassadors and influencers of all united nations member states to convene, consolidate and lend a voice in representation of local issues for global action through co-creating art activism project ‘Re-Genesis’.
We are building:
1. a worldwide, volunteer-driven team to oversee various management line functions and efforts in Operations, Design, IT, Finance, Project Management and Social Media & Communications;
2. a likeminded, like-hearted community to share their experiences to co-create art which will manifest as a dynamic virtual platform and forum for changemakers to discuss shared Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)/ issues and activate resources for fair human and biodiversity rights on our planet.
You will have the opportunity to elevate, empower and inspire civil governance in your respective cities and communities at the global level, and to provide leadership and mentorship for activating local and/ or international resources in developing solutions for real on-the-ground issues to be presented through the digital platform for long-term engagement and impact.
About Michel Platnic
Michel Platnic (1970), born in France, obtained a M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering in 1994. He obtained several patents and authored many publications when he worked as an Engineer for more than a decade. He moved to Israel at 28 and found his artistic voice in his new place of residence and went on to study theatre, performance, martial arts, and dance. Realizing his inclination towards the Fine Arts, Platnic graduated in 2010 with honors in Fine Arts from the Midrasha School of Art in Israel. That very year, he received the Shpilman Grant for Excellence in Photography and was selected by ST-ART, an incubator project for young artists. In 2017, Platnic completed the Art&Media “Meisterschüler” program of the Universität der Künste (post-M.A.) in Berlin.
Platnic’s work unfolds through multiple media including photography, video, new media, performance, painting and the links that bring them closer together. Platnic has been creating illusionary worlds and letting the viewer become part of them. Immersion in these spaces is employed as a means of deconditioning. Observing and reenacting the rituals and symbols of power, Platnic tracks down the mechanisms that authority uses to submit, to condition and to create participants in its system. By laying out the conditions of aesthetic subversiveness (notably in his series of living paintings, with its formal work on the voluntary confusion of media), Platnic beckons us to take notice of the forces that tacitly and without our knowledge indenture us.
Platnic's works have been exhibited in galleries, institutions and museums across Israel and abroad. His solo exhibitions include the Multi-Media Art Museum, Moscow (2015), The Open Museum of Photography, Tel-Hai, Israel (2014), Haifa Museum, Haifa, IL (2012), Ramat-Gan Museum, Ramat-Gan, IL (2011), Art Stage Art Fair, Singapore (2015), Gordon Gallery, Tel-Aviv (2017 & 2014) and Fresh Paint Art Fair, Tel-Aviv (2013). Platnic has also participated in group exhibitions around the world including the Changjiang Biennale of Photo&Video, Changjiang Museum of Contemporary Art (2015), Gutman Museum, Tel-Aviv (2014 & 2015), Center for Contemporary Art, Tel-Aviv (2011), Tel-Aviv Museum (2011), FusionsArts Museum, New York (2010), the National Academy of Arts, Kiev (2017), Galleria Continua, Boissy-le-Châtel (2015) and the Gazelli Art House, London (2013).
