Abstract or Description
Essay on the work of Paris-based artist Esther Shalev-Gerz, published on the occasion of her solo exhibition at Jeu de Paume. Over three decades Esther Shalev-Gerz has consistently performed a process of unravelling particularities in order to reflect on the ways in which the generalities of history and memory are constructed. Working with a specific place, a certain moment in history, an urgent question, or a shared experience that resonates through history, Shalev-Gerz mines the personal in order to address and interrogate the ways in which the present is understood.
