Pomegranate: A Video by Ori Gersht

March 9, 2008 - August 21, 2008


Referencing a still life by 16th century Spanish artist Juan Sánchez Cotán, Ori Gersht’s eerie and painterly video features a ripe pomegranate dangling from a string and framed with other freshly harvested produce in a window. In slow motion a bullet slices through the fruit—a food symbolic of Bible, Jewish law, and Near Eastern culture—spraying blood-red seeds and flesh in the air.

Presented in conjunction with artis: Israeli Contemporary Art in New York
