The Disenchanted Forest: Nogah Engler and Orit HofshiDecember 8, 2006-July 2, 2007
Location: Ticho House
Artist: Nogah Engler and Orit Hofshi
Curator: Timna Seligman
Media: Pencil and ink drawings, oil paintings, woodcut prints, and carved woodblocks
Nogah Engler and Orit Hofshi's very different personal renditions of "the forest" brought to light aspects of an almost primal and ambivalent relationship with the forest rooted in traditional European folktales, eyewitness accounts from World War II, and collective memory. The works in the exhibition - pencil and ink drawings, oil paintings, woodcut prints, and carved woodblocks - revealed images of forests that are at once real and fantastic, enchanting and menacing.
