Angelika Sher | There’s a Green Oak-Tree by the Shores

One upon a time in a land far away (between Israel and Lithuania).

Angelika Sher’s exhibition opens with a quote from Aleksander Pushkin’s famous poem- Ruslan and Ludmila. The poem, written between 1817-1820, is the symbolic axis of the exhibition. Her work is a quest, unfolding in a dramatic, remote and beautiful set. Anchored in a fantasy land between Israel and Lithuania, she creates a magic space of immigration. The harmonic and colorful world is the archetype Garden of Eden from which all humans were exiled to a strange and foreign land. The narrative of the exhibition is carefully built using folklore and fables, developing into expressions of multicultural identities and an examination of integration processes in new cultures.
