“Scars created by wars on our collective and personal memories are at the essence of my practice.” Ori Gersht
Ori Gersht opened his first UK museum solo show recently, not at an art gallery but at London’s Imperial War Museum. The display presents two dual-channel film pieces and a new body of stills.
Often drawing on wider themes of history, conflict, time and landscape, Ori Gersht explained the nature of his process in saying, “Scars created by wars on our collective and personal memories are at the essence of my practice. In my work I often explore the dialectics of destruction and creation, and the relationships between violence and esthetics.”
On Show: Ori Gersht’s This Storm Is What We Call Progress – British Journal of Photography.
