In partnership with the Pizzuti Collection, the Columbus  Museum of Art presents an installation of work by highly acclaimed artist Ori Gersht. Born in Israel and based in  London, Gersht has created a body of photographic and  video work that combines exquisite beauty with memories of violence and historical trauma. Recalling romantic  landscapes and eighteenth-century still life paintings, the work is rich with art-historical allusions, but also suggests ongoing political conflicts. Gersht heightens our perception of movement and stasis; looking at his work is to feel  suspended in time and caught within the layers of history.

Ori Gersht: Still Life is presented in collaboration with the Pizzuti Collection, and draws primarily from its holdings  of the artist’s work. Concurrent with this exhibition, the Pizzuti Collection will also be showing a film series, Ori Gersht: Portraits. This exhibition will feature successive  presentations of three forceful video portraits, each connecting moments of quiet contemplation with violent  histories and anguished realities.
