Ori Gersht: Slivers
curated by Dr. Doron J. Lurie
13 December 2014-02 May 2015
Ori Gersht (b. 1967) explores the boundaries of photography and challenges its technical limitations. In his new body of work, he creates artificial flowers inspired by Jan Brueghel the Elder, surrounds them with mirror-walls which he then shatters, and documents everything with video and stills. The result intertwines beauty and destruction and raises questions about the natural and the artificial, fragility and death, manipulation and the imperceptible to the eye.

Contemporary art is rife with erasures. Erasures are visible in it, present as themselves in various ways. The subject of the works in the exhibition is what was once a covert stage in the process of creation. Unlike observing works whose wholeness and meaning depend on hidden parts, the current gaze is focused on the contradictory presence of the erased and on the erased/visible relationship as a signification factor.
