Land Escape

Opening: 29.10.20 - Closing: 14.1.20

Artist: Einat Amir
Curator: Irena Gordon

Einat Amir created in the workshop an archive of images based on landscape photos of Eretz Israel taken from a 1956 “Mihlal Youth Encyclopedia”. Combining a range of techniques and approaches, she conceived an imagined and mysterious Atlas, based on the two mediums that have accompanied encyclopedias and science books from their early beginnings – etching followed by photography. The “Atlas” offers new and other landscapes that lead the spectator astray, questioning both the scientific research and documentation of the universe and its human understanding.

Jerusalem Print Workshop

  The Jerusalem Print Workshop is a center dedicated to the promotion and fostering of the art of printmaking. The workshop was founded in 1974 by Arik Kilemnik – winner of the 2001 Teddy Kollek Jerusalem Foundation Prize – as a non-profit organization. Since 1977 the workshop is located in a picturesque building from the Ottoman period in Morasha neighborhood, on the seam line between east and west Jerusalem. The Workshop wishes to be a home to Jerusalem based artists and artistic creation that will integrate traditional techniques with innovative technologies, and thus form a direct link to the glorious tradition of Hebrew print in Jerusalem and in the Land of Israel.
