This is a critical overview of international renowned artist Esther Shalev-Gerz's latest multi-disciplinary work.
Based in Paris, Esther Shalev-Gerz is internationally recognized for her seminal contributions to the field of art in the public realm and her consistent investigation into the nature of democracy, cultural memory and the politics of public space.
In her commemorative monuments, installations, video and photographic works, questions about history are posed and its relationship with collective memory is investigated. "WHITEOUT: Between Telling and Listening" presents a multi-disciplinary portrait comprised of fugitive stories that exist between the actual and the fictional, and the imagined and the experienced.
Essayists address the work through a broader discussion of the artist's practice and offer a formal analysis in the context of historical approaches to photography and video.
