Nassima Landau is an art foundation acting as a bridge between the city of Tel Aviv and the international contemporary art world. By establishing itself as a hub of free speech and artistic innovation, Nassima Landau has revolutionized the local Tel Aviv art scene. For most of the artists, it is their first exposure in Tel Aviv. The program includes multiple exhibitions of emerging and established artists, site-specific installations, and artist residencies.
Borrowing the title from Marcel Proust’s seventh and final volume of “In Search of Lost Time”, published posthumously in 1927, Guy Yanai presents in Finding Time Again ten paintings depicting a diverse range of subjects, including portraits, landscapes, interior scenes, and cinematic reminiscences.
In Finding Time Again, each painting serves as an entrancing vignette. Yanai recalls a moment from an Eric Rohmer film where a couple converses on a dock; he captures the gentle movement of gauzy curtains in front of interior doors overlooking the hills of Roucas-Blanc and the Plage du Prophète; he recreates a photograph of the French model Laetitia Casta, depicting her direct gaze at the camera. Gathering these moments under a Proustian title suggests thinking about how these works rely on access to, or recovery of, the artist’s own memories of experiences, images, or films—such as Rohmer’s Boyfriends and Girlfriends (1987) and Luis Buñuel’s That Obscure Object of Desire (1977).

Japanese culture has always fascinated Steeve Nassima. So it’s not surprising that the first works the Belgian businessman turned art advisor was drawn to were by artists like Nobuyoshi Araki. But it was an encounter with a piece by Yayoi Kusama that really kick-started his—dare we say—obsession.
Breaking The Mould. Embracing Change
Nassima Landau presents international contemporary art of the highest standards in its new art space in the center of Tel Aviv. The foundation, first of its kind in Israel, features major exhibitions, residencies and unique one-time events.
