Prophecy of Place: Quintan Ana Wikswo

August 14, 2011 - February 26, 2012
Selz Foundation Gallery

Quintan Ana Wikswo’s dreamlike yet haunting photographs and poetry form the heart of this conceptually innovative exhibition. An internationally acclaimed artist and author, Wikswo uses damaged antique battlefield cameras and distressed film mixed with poetry to present kaleidoscopic portraits of the Jewish historical experience in seven countries, eight centuries and nine languages. Utilizing text, as well as still and moving images, the exhibition creates a dramatic environment of shifting languages, time and place.
