Territories Unraveled

I re n a G o rd o n Territories Unraveled Curator : Irena Gordon Jerusalem Artists House 9 June 2018 – 4 August 2018 The territory , whether concrete or metaphysical , contains semantic fi elds rich with meanings and interpretations which constantly expand and become strati fi ed . It is a space that begins with the individual ’ s body . Never separate , it depends on the individual and continually returns thereto . It is a survivalist signi fi er which strives to be clear and unequivocal , but in many respects it is fl uid , calling for wandering between identities , ascriptions , and displacements . In his Eye and Mind , Maurice Merleau - Ponty de fi ned the imaginary as “ much nearer to , and much farther away from , the actual . " The search for real and imagined territories is integral to the constitution of the self and other , a practice which takes place concurrent to and intertwined with a process of unraveling and deconstruction , elimination and reformulation of the sign .  אל הספר
