Ori Gersht: Evaporation
June 18 – August 28, 2021
Talley Dunn Gallery is honored to announce Evaporation, a solo exhibition of works spanning the diverse oeuvre of internationally acclaimed artist Ori Gersht. This virtual presentation brings together images from five distinct bodies of work, which were created over a period of almost twenty years: White Noise (1999), Liquidation (2005), Hide and Seek (2008), Chasing Good Fortune (2010), and Floating World (2016). During the last two decades, Gersht has undertaken a series of journeys in search of the relationships between place, identity, and memory as they coalesce at specific sites.
