FRÉDÉRIC BRENNER »AN ARCHEOLOGY OF FEAR AND DESIRE« – selected by LAURA MOYA

»AN ARCHEOLOGY OF FEAR AND DESIRE is Frédéric Brenner’s visual exploration of contemporary Israel as metaphor, giving us images that examine the complexities of identity and the myth of appearances – familial, social, and religious. Portraits are made with an 8 x 10 camera and a small depth of field: a man with a stitched scar running the length of his face, two lovers surrounded by a forest of giant cactus plants, three men with extreme facial coverings at an airport. Urban and rural landscapes show different versions of what the “Promised Land” is (maybe) supposed to mean. This is a quietly fine book, easy to hold – but the viewer is left with the feeling that although the imagery is beautiful, there is much we don’t know.«
