Gersht: Lost in time

Gersht: Lost in time
Library Shelf Location 18.GERS
Publication Date 2011
Description In this catalog for his first solo museum exhibition in the western United States, Israel-born photographer/filmmaker Ori Gersht depicts scenes of natural beauty that disguise and reveal a history of violence. His work has been shown at the Tate, the Hirschorn, the Getty, and other important institutions. Several of the 28 works in this slim, paperback catalog from the Santa Barbara Museum of Art use stop motion photography and slow-motion film to render a prolonged moment of suspense. With Gersht's trademark references to historic paintings, these remarkable photo/film works provide a meditation on life, loss, destiny and chance. In one series, Gersht recreates a flower arrangement from a work of Jacques-Louis David which he then freezes with nitrogen and blows up, capturing the action in vivid detail at 1/6000 of a second. This meticulously printed color catalog does justice to these complex works.
