Esther Shalev-Gerz

On Two. 2009-2014
Video installation
In the work On Two, Esther Shalev-Gerz focuses on deconstructing aspects of identity related to temporal constructs of history and memory. The artist questions how we understand our place in the world and presents an exchange of ideas emerging from communication situations through the use of video, photography, sculpture, and installation. Central to On Two is a dialogue between two philosophers, Rola Younes from Lebanon and the French philosopher Jacques Rancière, in which both of them strive to sustain their relationships to and perceptions of the world as vital and regenerative.
