From 29 June 2023
The oeuvre of Tunisia-born Ofer Lellouche sheds light on universal questions of being human before the backdrop of the artist’s multicultural identity. Lellouche, who lives in Tel Aviv and Paris, began experimenting with video art and painting in the 1970s and has worked in the most varied media over the course of his career including drawing, sculpture, etching, and woodcut.
The self-portrait and the human body are the most important themes in his oeuvre. Of great significance to the process by which his works are created is the unity of content and form: rather than force an abstract idea on any given medium, he consciously allows the specific characteristics of a woodcut, a metal plate, or a bronze cast, for example, to influence his final result.
On view from 29 June until 24 September 2023.
