The tension between permanence and the ephemeral is arguably inherent in Jerusalem's spiritual and urban geography. Avner Sher explores this fleeting zone.
Alternative Topographies is comprised of "Maps of Jerusalem" and "Spolia," both series addressing city space that is perpetually devolving. Sher works in cork, bark that is peeled off the trunk once every nine years like a repeated trauma. Sher tans and makes it his own formats, creating an archaeology and history for the material.
Venue: Tower of David Museum
