DESCRIPTION

Night Gallery is pleased to present a re-staging of Derek Boshier’s Journey/Israel Project installation originally exhibited at the Miskan Le Ormanut Museum of Art, Ein Harod, Israel in 1996.  Journey / Israel Project is an installation made from 93 images that follows the journey of the Jewish people from Auschwitz to Israel.  These images, which are a combination of photographs and drawings, will be placed linearly along the walls of the gallery.  As the viewer follows the sequence of images, Boshier’s poignant re-telling of the story becomes unfurled through a series of uncanny formal transitions.  Journey / Israel Project is as much about changing landscapes as it is about the Jewish struggle and represents an important part of Boshier’s oeuvre.
