Curated by Monica Holmen, The Space Between Here and There, presents work by artists Ariel Reichman and Siri Hermansen who have produced works that result from residencies in Jerusalem. The conflict zone forms an underlying note to the exhibition, yet the artists’ gazes bring the viewers elsewhere. In this exhibition it is the area between the extremes – “the space between” – that is explored. Consequently, the artworks can be seen as means to try to understand human strategies for survival, tied to universal circumstances. Not least, it is an attempt to bring forth other perceptions and perspectives in a conflict dominated by polarised depictions.
