Schechter Gallery has released a digital version of the catalogue accompanying the exhibition TBQ which was on view in the Tel Avivian space in April of 2019.
The exhbition titled “Genizah” (in Hebrew) or “Torah Bible Quran (in English), reflects on the place of the sacred within our lived experience.
Shahar Marcus and Nezaket Ekici embark on a journey of observation and research concerning manifestations of the sacred in texts, written fragments, and book covers – in the natural expanses of the sea and a forest as well as on boisterous city streets. They inquire about the meeting of the sacred and the body, about the tensions born of its relationship with time, and about its function in the context of various rituals.
The power of this trilogy lies in the creation of a stance that is at once removed and intimate. This stance allows for the observation of various elements pertaining to the sacred and related practices, and above all, the embracing of what is meant to reamin distant. The Schechter Gallery chooses to engage with complex materials even when they touch upon sensitive issues and may provoke potential friciton or criticism. Shira Friedman, the exhibition curator, has artfully crafted an artistic and philosophical exploration that is given expression through a challenging and original exhibition, in which the artworks present fascinating and subversive research processes shaped by fearlessness and a refusal to compromise.
