Award-winning photographer investigates collective memory through an intriguing drama
Recipient of the Lauren and Mitchell Presser Photography Award for a Young Israeli Artist, Ronit Porat portrays a murder story through a deeply thought-provoking lens. Following a Berlin watchmaker and his murderess, this exhibition is the third in a trilogy and focuses on the murder’s aftermath. Most of the photographs are created using her own new collage technique, combining visual and archival sources to explore the influence of past events on communal and personal memory. Acclaimed to be “charged with psychological and gender aspects” and making reference to “the original, interference, reproduction and dissemination,” check out Porat’s fascinating works.
