Platform 82 powered by Zilberman is a new art space, a platform that aims to bring together artists, curators and institutions from different corners of the world, generating dialogue through conversations, presentations, publications, and exchange programs. From October 2023 onwards, we extend an invitation to institutions, curators, artists and all other contributors of the art scene for artistic exploration, discursive practices, and dialogue.
Instances of Erasure
Platform 82 will start its activities with a video screening program titled Instances of Erasure, bringing together 8 video works by 8 artists, accompanied by a series of conversations. Running from October 19th 2023 until February 17th 2024, we will screen two videos by two artists roughly every four weeks, with conversations between artists and guest speakers.
Instances of Erasure delves into the theme of erasure. Through their visual narratives, artists invite the viewer to contemplate the delicate threads that connect memory, history, and the shaping of identity. It encompasses urban structures, architectural fragments and unseen traces that enable one to re-read social and personal histories.
Letters to Shevik, 2021,
One channel video and sound installation, 15’
From 1987 until his death, Isaac Katz, the artist's great-grandfather, was writing letters to his deceased wife, Bat-Sheva (also known as Shevik), on a weekly basis.  In these letters, 238 in all, he chronicled his everyday activities, reminisced old memories, and reflected on the nature of old age, solitude, and love. This video and sound installation takes an epistolary form and contemplates writing as an act of self-preservation and seeking solace as well as a ritual of intimate exchange.
The Song, 2022
One channel video and sound installation, 22’
The Song draws on Bani Abidi’s interest in sound and migration, and on what it means to be acoustically displaced. An older man who is a recent arrival to Europe, confronts the silence of his allotted Neubau apartment, finding his own way to settle down. This film gently nudges up to realities of migration and homesickness and associated yearning, traumas and loss.
