Nekoda Singer

After I was born in 1960 in Novosibirsk (Western Siberia, Russian Empire) I immediately began to indulge in fantasies, both verbal and visual. Dreaming of far away continents, at the age of 13 I began to work with animals in local zoo, but after finishing the school instead of going around the world I started to work as a set decorator in the Novosibirsk State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre and to study in the Institute of the Theatre, Music and Cinematography in Leningrad. After that I spent several years being a garbage collector in Leningrad and Latvian folk craftsman in Riga. In 1988 I finally set off to a remote destination and settled in Jerusalem. In 1991, together with Gali-Dana Singer, I wrote 'The Manifesto of Neo-Eclecticism', and since then I constantly break the laws of this radical art-movement and dismiss myself from it. Nevertheless my approach remains rather close to the basic principle of Neo-Eclecticism - the proximity of consciousness with its sub-laws: the unity and the struggle of the protagonists, the conversion of a quality into a quackery and a quandary, and the reflection of reflections. I also write fiction and essays, study and translate Talmudic and Midrashic literature - the ancient source of eclectic and hermeneutic thought.
