Curator: Carmit Blumensohn
The exhibition Re-Seek proposes a broad perspective on the concept of "seeking", beyond the immediate meaning. The artists in the exhibition approach the subject via diverse perspectives ranging from local and global, tradition and new age, loss and search, destruction and creation. The search is not narrative based. Rather, it proposes entry into a non-verbal field of artistic exploration in multiple media. It oscillates from dramatically sentimental and powerful to "polite", didactic and gentle. From works abouthuman identity and the complex architecture of the human soul, to works that place man in the center as a complex being filled with contradictions. The search is authentic, stemming from an awakening and awareness to the act of searching, a search driven by a passionate urge to find a way.
