Friction between time and space, objects and memory, becomes tangible in the installation by Pesi Girsch, Window and the Shadow of Books. Girsh uses volumes of the Encyclopedia Hebraica, once the crowning glory of the Hebrew Enlightenment but today superfluous, alongside mise-en-scène photographs of books and furniture, moments of refined beauty and pain snatched from time. The encyclopedia echoes the failure of twofold optimism: the Age of Enlightenment belief that knowledge can be encompassed and that its foundations are unchanging; and the early days of the State of Israel, when the first Encyclopedia Hebraica was published and signified the culmination of general and Jewish culture.
