Dovrat Amsily-Barak: Déjà-Vu

November 17 - December 24, 2010

Déjà-Vu is the inaugural U.S. exhibition for Israeli artist Dovrat Amsily-Barak. In this photographic series, the artist’s family members serve as models for a materialization of fantasies of a previous life in Europe under a Christian identity. Her “theater of stills” feature artificial interiors of monasteries, hospitals, asylums and orphanages. As in 17th Century Dutch genre paintings, her seemingly innocent interiors and objects produce a clandestine moral critique of her life and her art which she considers “one and the same.”
