Ronit Porat: The Sentence
The Lauren and Mitchell Presser Photography Award for a Young Israeli Artist, 2017
In this exhibition—the third in a trilogy about a Berlin watchmaker and the woman who killed him—Ronit Porat focuses on the legal process. Most of the photographs are based on visual and archival sources, and are presented in a new technique of collage, dealing with the influence of past events on collective memory and the artist's memory. Porat's works are charged with psychological and gender aspects, and refer to original, interference, reproduction and dissemination.
