Work by Shai Kremer
Opening reception at HCP, Thursday, May 21 from 6-8pm.
Shai Kremer´s Infected Landscape depicts Israel´s terrain altered by the destructive nature of long running conflicts. From the most obvious physical marks to the most subtle, traces of Israeli military presence are evident in the artist´s work, shedding light on the nation´s convoluted relationships with surrounding territories.
