10:29Ori Gersht by #ArtSpace
Over the course of his successful, fifteen-year career, Ori Gersht's interests have included history and metaphor, journeys and geographical places, and the constant intertwining of metaphysical space into his subject matter. Gersht’s practice bridges together a history of trauma, be it through his Afterwar series, which depicts the scars and weals left on the sunlit and war torn buildings in Sarajevo, White Noise, depicting his train journey to Auschwitz, or The Clearing, filmed in a forest saturated with memory, situated in the Ukraine. Engaging in the difficult arena of pushing the photographic camera to its limits, while working in innovative ways with film and video, Gersht distinguishes himself from his counterparts. Moreover, Gersht’s highly researched aesthetic has an instinctive and innovative approach to the materiality of his medium and, as a result, contributes to the impact his work has on its viewers.
Ori Gersht had solo shows Survey of works between 2001-2011 at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art in 2012; History Repeating at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in 2012; Ori Gersht: This Storm Is What We Call Progress at the Imperial War Museum in London in 2012; Evaders and Falling Bird at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art in Tel Aviv in 2011.
