New Limited Edition by Ori Gersht

Ori Gersht Below the Surface, 2013 25X20 cm. Edition of 10. Price: $3,500

Below the Surface was produced during a short residency at the Nottingham Castle Museum, located in the historic Sherwood Forest above an old target range. In an attempt to link the peculiar architecture of the range with the castle and the museum, Gersht selected a painting from the museum’s collection, photographed it, and produced a high quality print at its original size. He then used the print as a target at the firing range. The distressed print was placed in the frame of the original painting hung on the wall as a substitute to the original artwork, and displayed in the museum for the duration of the exhibition.

This limited edition consists of a photograph of the bullet-damaged print within the original frame of the painting. Through the process of re-photographing, the distressed print and the original frame were visually merged. Together they present a new, elusive, deceptive original. The multi-layered images will be presented inside a two-inch deep, boxed frame, transforming the two-dimensional print into a three-dimensional object, while referring to the three dimensionality of the original frame.

Ori Gersht is one of the most successful Israeli artists working today. He has exhibited his work at the Tate Modern and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; The Museum of Contemporary Art, San-Francisco, amongst others.
